Catfish Holiday

European catfish move to summer residence

Our second attempt to populate the greenhouse fish tank after a false start.


Greenhouse tank - pumping water to the outside greenhouse Sam Brown-Kenyon


After the unfortunate deaths of the African catfish in the new greenhouse tank (here), we have replaced them with European catfish. European catfish can tolerate the colder temperatures (around 21 celsius) which are present in the greenhouse tank as it is located outside the insulated office of Mediamatic.

This underlines the value of having an environment for both plants and fish which is relatively stable, regardless of the outside weather or season. We hope this will be a better fit for the new system and that both fish and plants are happy.
