Relevant Information:

Alongside D. urostriatum they are difficult to induce to spawn but very easy to keep in a normal community aquarium as they will not bother any other tankmates. As with most catfish they will need some form of shelter such as plants and or driftwood/pipework/stones. Diet: Will take most aquarium fare such as good quality flake, tablet food and frozen food such as bloodworm.
