Ariidae
Ariidae

 

Ariidae = ( air EE id dee )

This family contains catfish from marine and freshwater habitats. A few practice an unusual mode of reproduction of mouthbrooding. Not popular catfishes for the home aquarium as some grow too big and boisterous with a rather dull silver colouration, but a few of the smaller varieties can be kept with larger tankmates. Most will need salt added to their water
as they grow larger.
