Buy @ Sims Tropical Fish

A large, banded open-water catfish with long whiskers and a deeply forked tail. Primarily used as a food fish in its native habitat, this fish is only rarely traded as a pet, and given its large adult size and need for a spacious aquarium, should not be purchased on impulse. In the right tank, these are very impressive catfish.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A predatory fish, this species will eat a variety of foods (including inappropriately small tankmates). Pieces of shrimp and white fish, as well as large pellets, make a suitable diet for these catfish, though it is important not to overfeed them. Typically, large catfish need feeding only when they are actively "begging".
