Satanoperca acuticpes is only rarely offered in the trade. It comes from the central Amazon region and so is found in both blackwater and whitewater environments. Because of the morphological differences between it and the other species of Satanoperca, particularly in terms of the mouth, it is likely a pelagic feeder and not a sifter, in the strict sense. Therefore, it needs to be fed frequent with relatively small, easily chewed items such as frozen brineshrimp and bloodworms. Crushed pellets may also work, but success has been documented using a gel diet consisting of frozen green peas and krill. Due to the specialized feeding requirements, it is best to house S. acuticpes with species that can be easily competed with. Avoid housing S. acuticeps with aggressive or otherwise more dominant species. In aquaria, adult males are about 30% larger than females. Satanoperca acuticeps is a substrate brooder that conceals the eggs with substrate and the larvae with woody debris.
