It inhabits rivers, lakes and swamps and feeds on
a variety of food like algae, plants, Hydracarina,
larvae of Ephemeroptera, Chironomidae, Ceratopogonidae,
remains of remains (Coleoptera) and fish remains (Cichlidae,
Anabantidae). Aquarium Care: Tank
for fully-grown catfishes 200 litres for individual
keeping, and for socialisation at least 400 litres.
Best you take dark soil, stable plants and at least
a big cave. The aquarium must still be protected well,
weigh the lid down (walking catfish!!). The oxygen
is not a strong filtration so this is not too important.
Gill bag catfishes are also diurnal, they accumulate,
however, to the top of the water at night. The substrate
is searched continuously for food and is ploughed
constantly. Room temperature, 15-30 ° without
problems. These catfishes are not interested in water
values at all. Diet: When keeping
them one should take their great appetite into account.
Food tablets green and brown, great flakes, pellets
of trout, beef heart, food fish to 10cm and mussel
meat is taken away from you by fully-grown specimens
with great pleasure (Wawrzynski, Reinhold).
