The Colombian Shark Catfish is native to rivers and estuaries along the Pacific Ocean coastlines of Central and South America.
As a young fish it can survive in freshwater, but adult fish need to be kept in brackish or full marine setups. For this reason it is an unusual fish to keep in home aquariums.
