Chameleon Whiptail Catfish

Chameleon Catfish

One of the oddest and rare members of the farlowella catfish family is the Chameleon Whiptail Catfish. The chameleon whiptail has a triangular flat head with two beady eyes on top and a long broadly striped body. These exotic catfish live in leafy and sandy substrates and scavenge small insects, vegetable matter, and, well, behave like a catfish. So in the aquarium a sandy area is required to keep these fish alive. Other than that the chameleon whiptail will feed on most aquarium food.
