  • Petricola Catfish



A very attractively patterned catfish which makes an ideal and interesting addition to a Rift Lake setup of Malawi or Tanganyika cichlids. They are often more active in the daytime than many other Synodontis, especially if a small group is kept. This fish is named for the method it uses to breed. The Cuckoo catfish will lay eggs among the eggs of african cichlid mouthbrooders. Be careful because these eggs will hatch before the cichlid eggs and consume them!
