They can also spin a cotton-like substance to protect themselves while they rest, which can make them appear dead. These fish are great for tanks with larger fish that like to be cleaned. While these fish can be kept in groups they best kept singly.Note: This item may spin a harmless cottony substance in its shipping bag.
