Orange Spots are very similar to their cousins the peppermint bristlenose, they feature a dark body with tiny bright orange spots. The bristlenose catfish are tank cleaners that you will find in just about any aquarium, they do a fantastic job of eating leftover food and keeping algae under control.

The Orange Spot Bristlenose Catfish is quite flexible in its water requirements.  It can live in water ranging from soft to hard, with a Gh range of from 2 to 20.  Acid, neutral or alkaline pH all seem OK, although I would not subject this fish to extremes.

Although this is a tropical fish, it is not very tolerant of high temperatures.  The generally recommended temperature range is from 23 to 27 degrees C (73 to 81 degrees F).
