Lima Shovelnose 4"-5" (Sorubim Lima)

(fwf catfish lima_shovelnose)

Lima Shovelnose 4"-5" (Sorubim Lima)

Common Name: Lima Shovelnose Catfish

Origin: Peru, Amazon

Max Size: 18 inches

Temperature: 73 to 84 Degrees

PH Level: 6.2 to 7.3

Diet: Omnivore

Temperament: Aggressive

Care Level: Moderate

The Lima shovelnose Catfish requires a larger aquarium as an adult (180 gallons or more), but can be raised in smaller aquariums from 55 gallons on up as a juvenile. They are an active fish species that is known to jump out of uncovered aquariums, thus well covered aquariums are recommended.

Video is an actual fish in stock...  

Note: Lima shovelnose will do best in aquariums that resemble their natural surroundings as close as possible, thus a sandy/gravel mixed substrate, driftwood or tree root and Amazonian plant species will all highly desirable additions to a Lima shovelnose tank. While not overly  sensitive to overall water quality the Lima shovelnose does put out a large bio-load, which means aquariums housing this species should have  strong biological filtration and good water movement in order to keep high quality water conditions. Lastly the Lima shovelnose should be housed with other large aggressive fish species that it cannot fit in its mouth.
