Giraffe Nosed Catfish


The Giraffe Nosed Catfish comes from lake and river systems located throughout Africa. It has a large head and is a marbled or spotted gray with a few black spots arranged in a line.

A 125 gallon or larger aquarium is required for this catfish due to the large size. Provide an aquarium with a warm, stable temperature, and plenty of rocks and plants. The Giraffe Nosed Catfish is a very peaceful tank member and appreciates having several hiding places.

There is currently no documentation on the sexing and breeding of this species.

The Giraffe Nosed Catfish is omnivorous and should be offered sinking catfish pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and a good quality flake food.
