Banjo Catfish - Bunocephalus coracoideus
In the wild, Banjo Catfish (Bunocephalus coracoideus) are found in streams with lots of leaf litter and their appearances helped them blend in with the twigs and leaves of their stream. They are usually buries in this litter and need sand to bury in or wood/rockwork to hide under in an aquarium.
These catfish are peaceful tankmates and can be kept in most community aquariums either alone or in groups as long as there are plenty of hiding places for each fish. They feed on detritus, worms and insects on the bottom of their habitat. They can be fed a variety of sinking foods including bloodworms, blackworms, daphnia, sinking pellets and similar items.
