Trachelyopterichthys taeniatus (Striped Woodcat)
Long, almost eel-like catfish with a brown body and several pale stripes running along the flanks. Males and females are similar, but the male has a modified anal fin used to mate with the female before spawning.
Tends to be shy during the daylight hours, and will usually be found hiding in caves with some companions of its own kind.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A peaceful, gregarious species well suited to community systems, though it is predatory towards very small fish and also highly nocturnal. A good companion for acara, silver dollars, plecs, etc.
Consumes a variety of frozen foods as well as live foods like earthworms and river shrimps.
Not yet bred in captivity; like other driftwood cats, performs internal fertilisation before the female lays her eggs.
