Glass Catfish

Transparent Body: Glass catfish (Kryptopterus vitreolus) are famous for their nearly transparent bodies, which allow you to see their bones and organs. This unique feature makes them a popular choice for aquarium enthusiasts.

Origin: They are native to Southeast Asia, particularly found in Thailand's river basins. They thrive in clear, slow-moving waters.

Schooling Fish: Glass catfish are social creatures that prefer to live in groups. They feel safer and display more natural behavior when kept in schools of at least five or more.

Nocturnal Feeding: While they are active during the day, glass catfish often prefer to feed at night. In the wild, they primarily consume small insects and plankton.

Sensitive to Water Quality: Glass catfish are sensitive to changes in water quality and require well-maintained, clean water to thrive in an aquarium. They also prefer slightly acidic to neutral pH levels and a stable temperature.
