There is some needed work to
be done on this genera as identification to species
can sometimes be problematic. Some of the species
posses a rounded as well as a forked caudal fin which
is unique to this family. Aquarium Care:
Not too difficult to keep as long as the water quality
is kept up to a good standard. Diet:
Will eat most aquarium fare such as flake, tablet
food and frozen bloodworm. These catfishes will rarely
appear out during the day but may venture out for
food in early evening.
