Megalechis thracata
Spotted Hoplo Catfish
黑点铁甲鼠
These fish have the ability to breathe atmospheric air by gulping down mouthfuls of air and the oxygen is then absorbed into the bloodstream through the intestine. This allows the fish to endure poor conditions in the wild but it can still be observed exhibiting this behaviour in captivity. Can be kept in the standard sized community aquarium, so long as it is not being kept with fish fry or eggs, which may be eaten. Provide hiding places (eg: rocks, plants and wood). Is a bubble-nest maker; minimal surface movement should be provided. Good conditioning food and water changes should be provided to encourage spawning.
