Diet: Carnivore, micropredator. Brevis shelldweller can be kept in small tanks, even though I usually recommend to create enough empty space for swimming, because you never know. This species is aggressive, especially a male towards another male, so it’s always better to keep more females with one male. Don’t forget about shells, which are required for their successful breeding. Their basic colour is a golden mixed with beige.
