In the wild, they inhabit slow-moving rivers, streams, and flooded areas with sandy or muddy substrates.

Providing a spacious aquarium with ample swimming room and suitable hiding spots is essential to accommodate their growth and ensure their well-being.

Care Requirements: Maintaining stable water conditions with regular water changes, adequate filtration, and a well-balanced diet is crucial for the health and vitality of Albino Geophagus. They thrive in aquariums with sandy substrates and appreciate the presence of plants and rocks for hiding places and territorial demarcation.
