The Black Spotted Catfish from Nigeira meet Auchenoglanis biscutatus

We continue our small series on interesting species of catfish from Nigeria with one of the most pleasant species from the African continent: Auchenoglanis biscutatus. There are only two species of Auchenoglanis known: A. biscutatus from the Nile and the whole of West Africa and A. occidentalis from Central Africa. Both can grow to a length of more than 40 cm, but as they feed mainly on small particles they are usually very peaceful against even much smaller tank mates. The meaty lips that serve for the detection for food in mud led to the nickname "kissing mouths" for Auchenoglanis in aquaristic circles.
 
The black spotted catfish has no major threats in the wild but in North Africa, dams, water pollution (agriculture, domestic and commercial/industrial), groundwater extraction, and drought all pose possible threats to this species according to the IUCN Red List of Endangered species.
 
For our customers: the fish have code 100212 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
