Welp. Looks like Ill have to either keep all of my tanks running , rehome my livebearers, or thin out the platies and move them to my 10 gallon. I currently have them in a 20 gallon. I truely would love for Hawkeye to have a spawn, She is such a amazing fish. Also, wish me luck for the next three days! I have a Expensive Blue Moscow female about to give birth, her last fry were rather sickly and died within a few days.

I have just one more question, can pictus catfish be kept with Kuli loach? or would the 2 extra inches on the pictus allow them to devour the kuhlis?

It is a possibility. Pictus cats are naturally predatory, and reach 5 inches, and will eat smaller fish. The kuhli's would likely be severely stressed just with having the pictus in the tank, and remain buried for safety. Not a good mix.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
