Tatia musaica

22. January 2016

We
were able to import again a small number of the most attractive of all
driftwood-catfishes: Tatia musaica, the ninja-tatia. This beautiful fish
attains a maximum length of about 5-6 cm. Like all the driftwood
catfishes this species also has an internal fertilization. The male´s
anal fin is modified for that purpose, similar as it is well known in
livebearers. The female deposits the eggs in absence of a male.

Species
of Tatia are night-active. So often hide hide during acclimatisation
the whole day through. One must take care that the animals get enough
food in that phase. Settled fish will come out of their hiding place
when fed during during daytime.

For our customers: the fish have code 295852 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
