Mota Catfish Giant

Mota Catfish

The Mota Catfish is wild caught in Venezuela around the Orinoco River basin and sports a light silver body with a black leopard pattern and long whiskers. Considered "monster fish" these exotic catfish only grow to 16 inches and are actually good tank mates in a large aggressive aquarium. Mota catfish will eat small livebearers, frozen food and pellet food.

NOTE: Our current giant Mota was born with only one eye! So we offer this at a big discount. Otherwise healthy!
