This is a small family of only three genera, Amblyceps,
Liobagrus and Xiurenbagrus which are very rarely imported
for the aquarium trade. These three genera are found
in Southern Asia, China, Taiwan and Japan. Resembles the
loaches in their body shape and also possess 4 pairs of
barbels with the nasal barbels being very prominent.
Not very easy to keep as they do prefer fast flowing water,
so would need this criteria in the aquarium to survive.
Commonly known as "Hillstream Catfishes"
