Has anyone ever kept these fish before? If so any info on them?

Thanks!

Don't have any experience of them I'm afraid , although they certainly look interesting.

Here's a pic from fishbase:

It says that they grow to 9.7cm (4"), found in the amazon river basin and are very adaptable (pH 6 - 8 ). An article on PFK about a related species is here: http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk/pfk/pages/show_article.php?article_id=306

Thanks! There is not much info on these even on the internet so I wondered if anyone else has had any experience with them.

Never kept them but think they basically need treating like a small Geophagus species. Here's a link to an article about Geophagine tribe with some details on keeping, breeding and other stuff at the bottom.
