The Green Silk Gudgeon Dartfish is somewhat skittish in nature and will quickly dart into a burrow in the substrate if it is startled or senses danger. The Green Silk Gudgeon Dartfish may try to jump out of the aquarium or other small opening, so a tight-fitting lid is required. Rarely will it become aggressive towards other fish.

The Green Silk Gudgeon Dartfish feeds mostly on plantonic prey items suspended in the water column but will pick food off the substrate as well. For the home aquarium offer the Green Silk Gudgeon Dartfish a diet which includes mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores. The Green Silk Gudgeon Dartfish should be fed at least three times per day.
