genera have the common name of Cactus catfishes due
to their bodies being covered with spiny odontodes.
Their mouths are small with a few bicuspid teeth in
the jaws. Aquarium care: Would need
a large tank as they grow big and are territorial.
Provide plenty of caves and also hiding places that
will break up the line of site if keeping more than
one individual. Diet: As with all
of this genera they are carnivores and would need
to be fed on frozen foods such as Artemia, mosquito
larvae, mysis and shrimp. They can also be fed pellet
and tablet foods plus some vegetable matter to vary
