Cuckoo Catfish Question
I know that the cuckoo catfish (synodontis multipunctatus) breeds by taking advantage of haplochromine mouthbrooders. But do cuckoo catfish NEED to be kept with mouthbrooding cichlids? Can a group be kept on their own if I don't care whether they breed or not?
Will eat about anything offered and grow to around seven inches fairly quickly.
I kept five with Electric blue Dempsey in 75 gal for close to a year. They then were a bit too large for the 75 gal in my view so I traded them for store credit.
Oh fantastic. I really wasn't sure if they NEEDED their mouthbrooding buddies to survive or just to breed. I plan on obtaining a small group in the near future to put in what will hopefully be a 200gal or more. Thanks 1077.
