Anyway, in preparation for fishing, fisherman hoped for a “serious” fish: a special rod for fishing, 300 meters strong fishing cord with a diameter of 0.6 mm, a 100-gram sinker.

One of the main signs is the lack of scales, often replaced by bone plates. Catfish are benthic nocturnal or crepuscular lifestyle. Among them are predators, but most species prefer detritus, vegetable foods, and benthic invertebrates. Aquarists contain up to 800 kgs, not including hybrid forms. Content are suitable for normal aquarium conditions: the stiffness of 6-12°, the temperature 22 to 26 °C. the acidity is neutral, with small deviations in one direction or another.
