Relevant Information:

Aquarium Care: Good addition to the larger community tank and will not harass other occupants as long as they are not too small to be eaten on this catfishes night time prowls. Provide hiding places for it. Would prefer cooler water at the bottom end of the tropical temperature scale as it is found in the southern parts of South America, in Uruguay and Argentina. Diet: Will eat most aquarium fare but as this species is nocturnal as per normal for this genera you would need to be make sure that it is eating.
