OATA Care Guide: Catfish

OATA The Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association

OATA, the Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association, was set up in 1991 and throughout that time have represented the whole aquatic industry – from importers, manufacturers and wholesalers to retailers and pond and aquarium consultants.

OATA produce a good range of free care sheets for coldwater, tropical freshwater and marine fish as well as for invertebrates, aquatic reptiles and plants.

Catfish are a popular addition to a tropical set-up. They are found throughout the world’s freshwater systems and are often sourced from Asia, South America and the African lakes. The most common types of catfish found in the aquarium trade are Corydoras and suckermouth catfish, although there are many others available.
