Usually the „typical“ catfish with long barbels become quite big and are therefore also called “predatory catfish” in the hobby. The lovers of these animals therefore have really large aquariums to care for their favourite fish. However, there is a species from South America, more precisely from Paraguay, which is truly also suitable for nano aquariums, since so far no specimens have been known from the wild that were larger than about 4 cm: Microglanis carlae. With about 2.5 cm length (without tail fin) the little animals are already sexually mature.
We could just import a number of these pretty catfish from Paraguay.
For our customers: the animals have code 268132 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply the wholesale trade.
