Brochis multiradiatus

Explanation of the symbols


Family : Callichthyidae
Origin : Equador
Length : 8 cm - 3"
Min. length aquarium : 80 cm - 30"
English name : Hognosed Brochis
This peaceful bottomdweller likes to dig in the substrate.  It is wise to use only very well anchored plants for decoration.  The aquarium can be set up with stones, driftwood and roots that make hiding places.  A part of the bottom of the aquarium should be free and should be sandy because they like to search after food in it and their tender barbels are easily damaged.  A regular large changing of the water is appreciated.

They are omnivorous.  You should give them a great variety of live, frozen and dry food.

About breeding in the aquarium not much is known.  It is supposed they spawn in a manner similar to Corydoras.
