They also dont do well with fast or pushy tankmates, and they dont hang out on tank bottoms like most catfish such as cory that we are use to seeing.
I have thought about these guys on a few occasions, but for me at the time, practically clear fish didnt have much of an eye catching effect that I was looking for. I have gotten over that now, but dont have the space for them. They are nice to have if you can provide what they need.
How big of a tank for just one group, i've stopped restalking my 29 gallon cause everytime i do i get an outbreak of ich, so i just figure what fish i have is who i will keep, and after being gone for nearly a month, (8 days at first, came home for 3 days and left again for another 19 days) my fish reduced by only a couple more, so i down to like 4-6 fish, so im thinking about putting them in my 14 gallon and 10 gallon once my baby fish(50-60 when i left for the first week now only 15....thus why i try and save all the babies i get cause i knew my numbers would go way down soon enough, and now im waiting for my bad luck, at this time i usually get an outbreak of ich that kills the remainding of my babies) get big enough and doing some new fish in my 29, like maybe a group of the Class catfish, and maybe like a smaller group of anoth kind a fish that will go great with the cats
