Driftwood Catfish (Centromochlus schultzi)

Out of stock

Remarks: Centromochlus schultzi, which is also known as the Driftwood catfish, is a small omnivorous fish from the Rio Xingu and Rio Tocantins in Brazil. These fish mostly hide during the day and tend to come out at night to forage for food.

They appear to be very poor swimmers and have difficulty maneuvering in tight spaces. Their lack of activity often catches our eye as a "problem" - i.e. they look like a fish that may have passed away during the night. However, a small drop of frozen bloodworms gets them excited again, and they are instantly zooming around the glass in search of food.
