|The Cuckoo Catfish is an attractive and popular catfish with a vibrant pattern, they make an intersting and a great addition to a Malawi Setup or Tanganyikan Setup. They are usually very active in the daytime and also have a nice personality. They are best seen in a small group as they tend to shoal together and adds life into a tank full of non active fishes. Great addition and a worth while fish to keep.
