How to Keep:

Hognosed Brochis thrive in well-oxygenated water with a soft substrate, allowing them to forage naturally. They appreciate hiding spots like caves and dense plantations. Being a schooling fish, they should be kept in groups of at least five to exhibit natural behaviour and reduce stress. They get along well with other peaceful community tank mates.
