Alestopetersius smykalai is a peaceful schooling fish and an excellent fish for the community aquarium with other peaceful species. The aquarium should be densely planted on the sides and the background. In the middle you should leave a lot of free swimming space. Since Alestopetersius smykalai are great jumpers the aquarium must be well covered. To show off the colours best use some floating plants.
