Giant Bumblebee Catfish (Pseudopimelodus bufonius)

$39.99

An attractively marked, medium sized catfish, the Giant Bumblebee Catfish (sometimes also called Jello or Jelly Cat) is found throughout the Orinoco and Amazon basins. In the wild, it tends to be found in relatively shallow, slow moving waters – often buried in leaf litter – and is an ambush predator, feeding on small fish, insects, and crustaceans. In the aquarium, they are extremely hardy and undemanding fish, feeding on most sinking prepared foods. Like most catfish, they are nocturnal, and will spend most of the day in hiding so be sure to offer several hiding places.
