Overview: These big-brained fish use electricity the same way dolphins use sonar. They send out electrical pulses to sense their environment, hunt for food, and communicate with each other. They are not dangerous like electric eels and electric catfish. Instead of discharging a large charge to stun prey or decapacitate predators like the cats and eels, these fish send out small electrical signals on a regular basis in order to "feel" the world around them.

Setup Considerations: Hiding places for each individual fish are important. They often choose to crowd together, but sometimes they like a bit of "alone time" and having the space to go off into their own private hiding space is important to them.

Specific Care Requirements: This species is highly gregarious. They do best in groups where their constant electrical chatter is frequently answered by conspecifics.

Diet: Peaceful Carnivores. In our experience, these fish won't eat flakes, pellets, and other processed foods. They need frozen and live foods in order to thrive.
