TEMPERATURE RANGE: 23-28 C

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

The biggest killer of tropical fish is overfeeding. Uneaten food decays and pollutes the water, even with adequate filtration. Adult fish should remain unfed one day each week, and almost all commonly available species will be completely fine if unfed during a two week vacation
