    is there something similar in Africa? we were cautioned of not peeing in the river cause of it…and the crocs/hippos aswell (obviously crocs would eat you, and hippos fight for territory, none are attracted by the urine

    Think some members of that family dwell in Africa yep Karlos. Whereabouts were you? We had some Trichomycterus sp. in at Tom’s shop once. Too big to swim up your thing but they were on sale as “Willy Fish” anyway (nowt to do with me).

    I think the actual records of them attacking humans is pretty low Haji. People are way more scary than these for me!

    Bad enough with the Red Devil cichlid that I have, he just loves attacking fingers, so definetly no Candiru for my aquaria.

    David you’d be a site in Emergency with a Red devil Cichlid on your fingers and a Candiru on your other “finger”…
