In the April 2013 issue, Jim Benfer profiles stick catfish. For those who are interested, stick catfish can make for a challenging breeding project. These videos and brief descriptions below may help you on the path to spawning your own stick catfish.

Breeding males entice females to spawn with them on vertical aquaria glass near the water surface beginning in the overnight hours.



Usually, the females deposit two adhesive eggs side by side, starting closest to the surface, and working downward until a double chain of eggs has been deposited and fertilized.

  1. That’s some pretty cool video footage. Really interesting to see, especially the double chain of eggs. Never seen this before. It has just made my weekend! :-)

    This was very interesting. I have been getting TFH for years and love the magazine. I particularly like the unusual fish type care articles.
