Giraffe Catfish (Auchenoglanis occidentalis)

$39.99

A gentle giant found throughout much of West and Central Africa, the Giraffe Catfish is a hardy and adaptable species with a distinctive spotted pattern. In the wild, it inhabits shallow, slow-moving areas of rivers and lakes where they use their large barbels to sift for food in the sand and mud. In the aquarium, they are undemanding and make excellent tankmates for similarly peaceful large fish.
