Kryptopterus vitreolus, known in the aquarium trade traditionally as the glass catfish and also as the ghost catfish or phantom catfish, is a small species of Asian glass catfish. It is commonly seen in the freshwater aquarium trade.
Displays a preference for slow-moving or standing habitats and has been collected from turbid brownish water as well as acidic blackwater.
Best kept in a well-decorated set-up with some surface or floating vegetationÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ since it appears to prefer relatively dim conditions.
The addition of dried leaf litter and/or alder cones would further emphasise the natural feelÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ while the tannins and other chemicals released by these as they decompose are considered beneficial for fishes from blackwater environments.
