An elongated laterally compressed and distinctive catfish. The body is seemingly entirely transparent, bar the head which is silver, with internal organs and backbone visible. It is typically 7.6-15.2cm (3-6 ").
They do well in a peaceful community tank with similar sized fish. Passive, shy and very accepting of their own species, keep this fish in groups of 4 or more, they do not do well singly. Do not keep with aggressive fish as these catfish will be bullied.
Feed once or twice a day, they will accept most foods including pellet and flake, benefits from live foods such as bloodworm and brine shrimp. Best suited to mature tanks with dense planting and plenty of hiding places as well as some open swimming space. Temperature of 24.4-27.8°C (76 -82 °F) is ideal.
