Got this obscure catfish from a vendor in New York. I bought it as another Leptodoras species but found out it was really juruense. Either way I feel lucky to have it. It has 8 whiskers/barbels and is very active.
I just got it so it is in a quarantine tank for now. Thanks for the info. I plan on getting some more and I will be sure to introduce them to a sand tank once I've treated them. I love this fish, so active and eating frozen brine and pellets.
