Gold Sucking Catfish 5CM

Originating in Thailand, Gold Sucking Catfish can grow up to 12cm in an aquarium, but can grow double this size in nature. Algae eater, that will eat dry or frozen food, but prefers vegetable matter. As it is a bottom feeder, ensure that enough food reaches it. Sinking pellets are a useful feeding option.

A few sucking catfish in your aquarium will keep algae to a minimum. They constantly move over leaves, rocks and glass, grazing on algae and picking up particles of leftover fish food. Sucking catfish do not eat healthy aquatic plants but are quick to clean up any decomposing plant leaves.

Providing water quality is reasonable, this active fish will reward you with years of algae eating hard work. Please note that after being a tireless tank cleaner in its youth an adult CAE species changes its gustatory preferences and starts to fancy live food as well as it can even start to nip scales from its tankmates.
