Sexually mature L-201?

Post by Bonobo1 »

Recently bought 5 wild caught still settling in one of my tanks.. First they were kind of shy but now I see them quite a lot.. All of them are around 4-6cm(1.57-2.36 inches) and so far I noticed 4 of them seem to want hang out while the biggest one prefer to be alone in a cave.How big these catfish have to get before start breeding and any good ideas how to sex them?

Hi Bonobo1,

My L201 were just over 65mm SL when they started breeding. Check out my BLOG report for details: ... =2178#1229

Cheers, Eric
