AQUARIUM CARE: A shy catfish species, that is often bought for community aquariums, but always outgrows them. Fortunately, some dealers will take them back when they get too big. Best kept in a shoal, ideally in a rounded tank to allow continual swimming. This species is far more active at night. Many species sold as Pangasius sutchi are misidentified, and some can reach over a metre in length. This fish is best avoided by the home aquarist.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Should I get rid of snails? Snails in the aquarium can be very useful. Many fishkeepers tend to overfeed a little, and this extra food sinks to the bottom and decays, polluting the aquarium water. Snails will happily come and eat up the left overs though - if you have an outbreak of snails you are most likely overfeeding your fish! If you really do want to remove snails, fish like the clown loach, and several puffers will eat them - but do make sure they are compatible with the other fish in your tank
