Armored Catfish

Armored Catfish (Hoplosternum littorale) are $15 each, plus shipping, and are a good choice to stock into warm water ponds and aquariums.  These catfish (~6-8″) are hardy and easy to keep, tolerating warm temperatures, crowding, low dissolved oxygen, and they are not picky about foods.  I think these are one of the most interesting fish species I’ve kept.  They show social behaviors with each other, slash at the surface when breeding and reproduce via building a temporary, floating, bubble nest.   They can be stocked with other fish and are not aggressive towards other species.   Contact us at to order and arrange shipping.
