Banjo Catfish (Bunocephalus coracoideus)

21 In stock

Remarks: Banjo Cats (Bunocephalus coracoideus) are small catfish with long tails. They inhabit slow-moving streams in the Amazon, blending in with fallen leaf litter to avoid detection. They typically remain hidden during daylight hours, coming out at night to forage for food. They appreciate bloodworms and sinking pellets. A sandy substrate is highly recommended, as they burrow to hide and may scratch themselves on sharper or larger substrates.
