It is an omnivorous fish and not a picky eater, will eat sinking pellets, algae wafers and blanched veggies. It has a unique coloration of alternating wide yellowish band and dark brown/black bands. It is a very good looking catfish. It loves to forage thought the aquarium day and night. They do well by themselves in small planted aquariums, or in small group in larger planted aquarium.
