Relevant Information:

Aquarium Care: Provide a soft substrate such as sand as this will be better as sharp gravel can be detrimental to the fishes barbels and its health. Provide caves or pipework so they can hide up during the day. Diet: As they can be very nocturnal they can be best fed at lights out with tablet foods and frozen foods such as bloodworms. If left to their own devices they will actively seek out food remains during the night.
