Does anyone have any experience with the 5 species of the genus Erimystax,
commonly referred to as slender chubs?

There is absolutely nothing published on the husbandry of these minnows, as far
as I can gather. My guess is that since they occur in larger rivers and deeper
waters, they're out of the range of most collectors. Also, they're
unspectacularly colored.
