Breeding behavior
Others
Sabaj,Armbruster und Page stellten 1999 die Hypothese auf, dass die Männchen in den Höhlen mit ihren Tentakeln den Weibchen vor machen, dass sie bereits Jungtiere pflegen und so diesen signalisieren einen potenten Partner gefunden zu haben.

Eine andere These geht davon aus, dass aus den mit Drüsen besetzten Tentakeln Glycoproteine abgesondert werden, die den Jungtieren in den ersten Tagen als zusätzliche Nahrung dienen.
Nicht mit der Gattung Pimelodidae verwechseln!
