Sexing[edit | edit source]

Males are slimmer than females.


Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]

This fish is predatory so should only be kept with fish larger than itself, anything smaller will be eaten. Has been known to eat fish of similar size that are slim-bodied such as other slender catfish. Keep with large robust top-dwelling and fast-moving fish.


Diet[edit | edit source]

Should accept most meaty foods including sinking pellets and wafers and live/frozen food such as bloodworm.
