The glass headstander is a viscous schooling fish that hovers upside down waiting for small prey below. These fish may be kept with fish of similar size however, and can adapt to frozen food or small sinking cichlid pellets, but be prepared to feed these wild critters live black worms, ghost shrimp, or similar live foods upon arrival. The Charax glass headstander is rare in the trade and is only found in Guyana. We recommend of school of four.
