Catfish Golden – undemanding aquarium fish

Golden catfish (bronze tetras hiding) is a benthic fish of the family of armored. Its name they received because of the unusual coloration that varies from light silver to copper tones. There are also albinos. Mouth of a catfish is located at the bottom of the head and equipped with sensitive antennae, which serve as supplements to the organs of taste and touch, and also allow to find food and navigate in complete darkness. Females are larger than males and have more rounded dorsal fin.

The content in the aquarium

Tetras hiding have peace and quiet temper, therefore, can coexist in an aquarium with any other fish. Their body is covered with rows of bony platelets, which are reliable protection against aggressive larger fish, but, despite this, it is better to settle them with proportionate neighbours and, preferably, without competition for food on the bottom.

Digging in the ground, they rise from the bottom of the turbidity, therefore in the aquarium, it is necessary to put a filter.But aerosatar for these fish is not mandatory – they can breathe oxygen from the air. They just need to leave access to the surface.

temperature – 19 to 24 o C;

pH is 6.5-8;

rigidity 1-25.

As a primer it is desirable to use fine gravel or cobble river sand.

Sexual maturity comes at the tetras hiding in 9-12 months. Females lay eggs on the leaves of algae, aquarium walls and rocks. First food for fry – shrimp nauplii and “living dust”.

Under normal conditions, Golden catfish can live to please their owners up to 10 years.
