Hemibagrus wyckii (Crystal Eyed Catfish)

A large, handsome catfish with a near-legendary reputation for aggression and destructiveness. Basic colour is mottled grey, but the distinctive feature of this species are its glassy blue eyes.

Most common in large rivers, where it may be found even into slightly brackish waters. Any aquarium designed for these fish needs to have a strong water current and lots of swimming space.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Approach this handsome caution: beyond their large size, they are predators and also highly territorial. They will destroy things like heaters placed inside the aquarium. Use a large external filter with a built-in heater when keeping this fish. Cannot be kept with any tankmates.

Can be raised on meaty foods including strips of fish, prawns, mussels, etc. Will quickly become tame.
