Yoyos are very active and fun to watch. Just like clowns and kobatai they are very social fish fish so it is best to keep them in groups of three or more.

Yoyos are also notorious snail hunters so no snail problems in a tank with yoyos!

I have heard that some people say their yoyos are very nippy and I haven't found that to be true. They do chase the kobatai around alot but this seems to be more play than aggressive behavior.
