Default Species profile - Liosomadoras oncinus (Jaguar cat)

Sci name : Liosomadoras oncinus

Family : Auchenipteridaebl

Common names : Jaguar Catfish

Max Size
: 8 - 10 inch

Temperature : 20 - 24C

pH. : 5.5 - 6.8

Range : South America: Peru, Brazil

Characteristics :
Body short and compact with a compressed caudal peduncle. Head, large and broad, its width at the clavicles greater than its length. The long humeral extension has small spines and the barbels are thin and filamentous without branches. Dorsal spine has teeth on anterior and posterior edges. Pectoral spines have outer and inner margins strongly denticulated. Adipose fin is the same length as the anal fin, ventral fins short and positioned nearer the anal fin than the pectoral fin base. Caudal fin emarginate.

Compatibility :
Can be kept in a community tank but may eat very small fish at night such as the fry of livebearers, but basically a good addition to the larger tank set up.

Breeding :
There are no known reported aquarium spawning's of this catfish but can be sexed due to the thickening of the anterior of the anal fin, as is the norm in this family, akin to the anal fins of the males of the Goodiae family of livebearers.

Feeding :
Will take most prepared foods such as frozen bloodworm, tablet and flake food. Better to feed at night after lights out, but once settled in tank will forage for food in low light conditions.

Personal Experiance :
A catfish which needs hiding spots like driftwoods. Not a social catfish. Eats sinking pellets readily and with gusto once acclimatised to your tank. Comes out with dim lights or in near darkness to look for food.

Cool thing about this catfish is that when it gets provoked (like by my rays), it can make a very loud "Ong" kind of sound. Hence I name my Jaguar Cat "Mr Ong". So much so my Rays occasionally love playing with it just to make it produce the "Ong" sounding sound.
