Care and maintenance

Maintenance and care of catfish is not a difficult process. They are contained in normal aquarium conditions at a temperature 22-28 ° C . Hardness of water 6-12.

Acidity is neutral. If you have the acidity will deviate a little in one direction or another, there is nothing terrible.

But it is very important that the water was not salty. To the oxygen regime, most species are not whimsical because the catfish has skin breathing or the ability to breathe atmospheric air.

The process of breathing consists in ascent of catfish to the surface, intake of air and submersion to the bottom until the air is completely exhausted. Soil does not matter.

In order for your catfish to be comfortable you need to equip an aquarium for him. Since the catfish is the bottom inhabitant of the aquarium, you need to make some kind of shelter for it.

It can be made of stone, different types of snags, it can be artificial houses, castles and plants. As for living plants, it is necessary to look at a specific species of catfish, since many of them are herbivorous and the plant can live with you for a very short time.

But still, if you want to plant plants in an aquarium, and you have herbivorous catfish, you need to choose plants that are large and have a well-developed root system. It is very important to make a territory for catfish and put snag.

Without such a shelter, the catfish will not be comfortable and the ego will shorten life significantly, and thanks to the coarse, the catfish will receive an important pulp of life.

Preparing for the purchase of aquarium catfish

When deciding whether to purchase a pet, you should conduct the necessary training. Qualitatively examining the peculiarities of a pet’s lifestyle and hobbies, one can guarantee the acquisition of necessary things.

Additionally, catfish are called “household orderlies” for their love of eating soil. Fishes destroy scales and food waste from the bottom of the aquarium, thus maintaining the purity of the reservoir.

High-quality cleaning of the aquarium is carried out by catfish, which is why the owner of the reservoir can forget about cleaning the aquarium. However, it does not hurt to get a quality filter, because the fish get their food in an original way.

They raise the settled debris from the bottom surface, moving the body, after the food begins to emerge, catfish eat it.

When organizing the settling in an aquarium, it is important to pay attention to the inhabitants of the reservoir that have already taken root. Not all fish get along with new neighbors and can eat them.

Guppies and neons are a favorite delicacy of catfish, therefore, to avoid deaths, the fish should be divided.

To create optimal conditions for catfish, it is necessary to fill the aquarium with stones or thick vegetation. These fish prefer to be in the shelter before the onset of the night time. In the daytime, they love to clean the bottom of the aquarium.

However, somics are not easy to see, because they have a special protective coloration and almost merge with the stones.
