Glass Catfish

Kryptopterus bicirrhis
Also known as the Ghost Catfish, this unusual, transparent-bodied fish is commonly bought as a novelty, but deserves greater appreciation. It is best kept as a shoal. Single specimens tend to hide and even die. Allow plenty of swimming space and maintain water quality to prevent bacterial infection. Provide efficient filtration giving a moderate water flow.
It prefers small live foods, frozen and flake foods. Although generally unaggressive, it may eat small fry if opportunity arises.
At rest these fish hang with tail down at an angle of 30'. This is normal.
They grow up to 10 cm. Water temp. should be 25'C pH 6,5.
