This catfish is named for the way it looks as it swims through the water. When this reclusive little guy smells food in the water, it comes out of it's hiding place and buzzes all over the aquarium in search of the food.
The Bumblebee catfish is not an aggressive fish, but it does have a very large appetite. fortunately it will stay a small size. This makes it convenient to house this fish with any community fish.
