It's Catfish Month!


That's right, August is Catfish Month! A time where we can celebrate all things catfish, from Corydoras to Synodontis and more...


At Fishkeeper Scotland, we absolutely LOVE our catfish! They make such great additions to any suitable aquarium due to their friendly and social nature. But did you know...



Catfish are negatively buoyant? This means that they can stay at the bottom of the aquarium without much effort or fear of floating up to the surface. This is due to the reduced levels of gas in their swim bladder and heavy bone structure in their head. It's no wonder these guys are commonly known as bottom dwelling fish.



It's fun facts like this that makes Catfish such an interesting type of fish to learn about and watch. And you could have them right in your own home! We have lots of different varieties of Catfish available across all of our stores. Which ones will you choose?...


We'd love to see your Catfish photos this month too! Send us some pictures on one of our social media platforms (Facebook or Instagram).
