Here is a link the the Planet Catfish page for it.


We've had one for about a year now and while you don't see them often, they're interesting when you do.

Hope this helps.

I had a bumblebee catfish many years ago. The only time it was seen was when the tank light was turned on after being dark for some time. Then, it would be glimpsed briefly as it made all possible speed back into its hiding place. We couldn't figure out what kept happening to the neon tetras either...
The catfish finally choked to death trying to swallow a bumblebee goby. We found the two corpses one morning, apparently the wee goby had some stiff pectoral spines.
