They are quite a sensitive species from what I have read in the past, and you need a large school of them otherwise they tend not to thrive.

They don't like boisterious or overly aggressive tankmates, and they seem to need a minimum tank size of 20-30 gallons.

They kind of freak me out I have to admit. I don't like being able to see the inner workings of my fish!

I love these guys, just wish I had the room and the expertise to keep them. My LFS always has some in stock, both the regular kind and the horrible tattooed kind. I get it - neon pink/green/yellow fish are a novelty, but why take something so beautiful and put it through so much suffering, shortening its life span? Profit. Sorry guys, there's my rant for tonight. -_-
