Do Banjo Catfish eat lots of algae?
Banjo Catfish are omnivorous, so will eat algae-rich food as well as meatier specimens like bloodworm. They should not be used to tackle algae levels in an aquarium however, they are not a catfish that will prevent a build-up of algae on glass or surfaces. A pleco would be more suited to this task.
The Banjo Catfish prefers slow-flowing aquaria with sandy substrate and dim lighting, and being nocturnal will spend much of the daytime hidden or burrowed into the sand.
