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.
