Quite a timid species so would need to be housed alongside
non aggressive tank mates. The large eye and very
long maxillary barbels gives a good identification
guide to this species. Diet: Will
eat most prepared foods and also likes a vegetable
addition to the diet.
Central Dem Rep. Congo. Type locality:
