Brachyrhamdia Meesi


Brachyrhamdia meesi, a lesser-known but fascinating species of catfish, is native to the freshwater rivers of South America. Characterized by its slender body and peaceful nature, this species is an intriguing addition to any tropical freshwater aquarium. Its adaptability and nocturnal habits make it an excellent choice for aquarists seeking to diversify their tank's ecosystem.


  • Slender, elongated body with a mottled brown and cream coloration, allowing for excellent camouflage among substrates and vegetation
  • Peaceful temperament, cohabitating well with other species of similar size
  • Nocturnal, becoming more active and visible during the evening hours
  • Relatively small size, making it suitable for aquariums as small as 20 gallons

Care Instructions:

  • Tank Size: Minimum of 20 gallons, with a preference for a soft, sandy substrate and ample hiding places such as driftwood and caves
  • Water Parameters: pH 6.5-7.5, soft to moderately hard water
  • Temperature: 22-28°C (72-82°F)
  • Diet: Omnivorous; a varied diet of high-quality pellets, flakes, and live/frozen foods tailored to bottom feeders
  • Compatibility: Ideal for community tanks with other peaceful fish; its shy nature requires the company of non-aggressive tank mates
