Tatia perugiae (Oil Catfish)

Very pretty little catfish, with a cream background and a leopard-like pattern of darker spots.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Nocturnal and very shy, like other driftwood cats this species is best kept in a quiet aquarium with plenty of hiding places. Once settled in, they will become a bit more bold, particularly if foods such as bloodworms are on offer. While these catfish will eat very small tetras and livebearer fry, they are otherwise harmless.

One of the few catfish that are internally fertilised, the males have distinctly modified anal fins (similar to those of halfbeaks or goodeids) used to deliver the sperm to the female. Eggs are laid a day or so later, and the parents do not offer any kind of broodcare.
