Origin

Sexing

Tank compatibility

A large solitary coldwater catfish. Should not be kept with smaller fish as they will be eaten, and any slow-moving or long-finned fish, such as Goldfish will be harassed and nipped. Can be kept in outdoor ponds provided the climate is not too hot or cold, but should only be kept with other larger Carp species, not Goldfish or long-finned Koi.
