Gagata cenia

7. September 2015

The Assamese Clown Catfish is the perfect choice for all aquarists that love lively species. This catfish attains a maximum length of about 15 cm, but matures at a length of less than 7 cm. The fish is a real energy pack. It can be hardly ever found resting for a minute, it is always on the move.

Clown catfish are – as a rule – sensitive fish, because they originate from very clean, running waters. However, well settled animals are real hardy, as is shown by the specimens we currently have in stock – they are in perfect condition!

One should keep Gagata cenia always in groups, because the fish are very social. There should be a good current in the tank. The bottom should be covered with sand and some larger stones. The water temperature can lie between 18 and 26°C, the pH beween 6.5 and 8, and the hardness between 10 and 30° dGH.

For our customers: the fish have code 416002 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
