Swallow Tail Catfish


a.k.a. African Glass Catfish, Debauwi Catfish

Eutropius buffei, Eutropiellus vanderweyeri

Native to: Nigeria, Africa.  Freshwater rivers of Nigeria, Cameroon and probably Gabon and Zaire.

 

A peaceful, omnivorous schooling catfish that is lively and active by day.  Needs tankmates of its species since single specimens feel insecure.  Recommended for a community tank.

Low-light tanks with floating plants are ideal and provide lots of swimming room.  Use a strong filter to create a current but otherwise the species makes few demands on water conditions.  Use darker gravels on the bottom.  Peat filtration is helpful because it darkens the water.  

Sexing: Females have a larger stomach, tough to tell though.  Although these are very difficult to breed, they are very easy to keep.  If frye are successful, they will grow rapidly!

pH-6-7

Temp: 72-82 (ideal 77 degrees)
