    Common Name/s: Asian Stone Catfish, Anchor catfish, Asian Moth Catfish

    Scientific Name: Hara jerdoni

    Family: Erethistidae

    Origin: Asia (specifically India and Bangladesh)

    Natural Environment: Slow moving streams with sandy bottoms.

    Size: under 1/2in or 3.8cm

    pH: 6-8

    Temperature: 68-75 F or 18-24 C

    Diet: Bloodworms (prefers live, but will take frozen), sinking catfish pellets, algae wafers.

    Tempermant: Extremely reclusive and shy... hides during the day and comes out at night to search for food.

    Tank Requirements: Although it is very small, the Hara jerdoni requires extremely stable water parameters. IMO, a 10g is a good minimum size for these catfish. They are also very social animals, so they prefer to be in groups. Sand is best for substrate, but other small grained subsrates will work just as well. Driftwood is a big plus for these catfish because they love clinging on to the underside during the day.
