Horabagrus brachysoma (Golden Redtail Catfish, Asian Sun Catfish)
An attractive bagrid catfish with a large eyespot fringed with yellow on shoulder behind the gill covers. Body colour is basically olive green, somewhat golden underneath and darker above.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Gregarious and basically peaceful, though predatory. Choose tankmates with care. Eats almost anything, including floating pellets, flake, or frozen foods. Largely nocturnal, though it will become day active once settled and especially if food is on offer.
Very adaptable in terms of water conditions, wild fishes are found in a variety of environments including brackish water. Prefers sluggish waters though, and likes to lurk under a cave or among robust plants.
Not bred in home aquaria.
|Water Parameters||Adaptable, but avoid extremes|
