Diet - These catfish should be offered live and frozen foods such as bloodworm, small earthworms etc., but most will learn to accept sinking dried foods. These fish are nocturnal therefore food should be added to the tank at lights out to allow them to browse naturally.
Compatibility - Peaceful and shy, but may eat very small fishes during the hours of darkness. Ideal tankmates include similarly-sized, non-aggressive characins, cichlids and other catfishes from families such as Callichthyidae and Loricariidae. It’s totally non-aggressive with respect to conspecifics, and appears equally comfortable when maintained on their own or as part of a group.
Our juvenile fish will vary from the image shown as our images are to show the potential colours and markings when at a fully mature size.
