Pangasianodon is a genus of large to very large shark catfishes native to the Mekong and Chao Phraya Rivers in Southeast Asia and adjacent China.
This species is not a true shark, but is commonly so called because of its torpedo-shaped body and large fins.
Pangasianodon hypophthalmus, It’s omnivorous, although a juvenile will require a good amount of protein in the diet in order for it to develop and grow at the correct rate. Offer a varied diet consisting of chopped earthworm, bloodworm and dry pelleted foods. As it gets older it will need a greater proportion of vegetable matter and items such as spinach leaves, frozen peas (just drop these straight into the tank), Spirulina-based dry foods and even the occasional slice of fruit can be introduced.
The tank must also be fitted with a suitably-sized, heavy cover as it occasionally breaches the surface during bouts of nervous behaviour.
