Ideal Conditions for this Aquarium Fish

Appearance This another species of colorful tropical freshwater fish. The main body color is a off white to silver yellow but mainly white. Over the eyes it has two big black spots as well as black coloring on the dorsal fin and just in front of the tail fin.

Strata Like most Catfish they are scavengers and stay on the bottom of the tank.

Peaceful, Community They do well in a community aquarium setup. They are also are very peaceful and prefers to have a couple of their own species around. You can keep two to four in a tank or they can even be kept in a school.

They can be kept in cooler waters than most other tropical fish. This can work well if you put them together with fish that can live in cooler waters. You can even keep them in a tank without a heater but it is better to put a heater in at a lower temperature, especially in colder regions.
