Striped Dora Catfish
Striped Dora Catfish –
The Striped Raphael Catfish Platydoras armatulus has been a favorite of aquarium enthusiasts for a very long time.
These are very pretty catfish with broad black and white stripes that run the length of their body.
The pattern is especially striking when young, though as they mature the striping is not quite as strong.
They also get pretty big as in the wild, generally growing to about 7.9 inches (20 cm) in length, yet in the aquarium, they are usually closer to about 6 inches (15.25 cm).
