Prctus cat and shrimp
Hello. I really want to get a pictus cat and some ghost shrimp or cherry shrimp. I was wondering if I could keep both of them in the same tank with the pictus eating the shrimp???
Agree, Pictus Catfish are predatory and get large. They need a large tank, at least a 4-foot, and should be in a group. Check out the profile info, click on the shaded name, or use the second tab from the left in the blue bar at the top to go to the Profile section.

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]

I agree. The pictus wouldn't have to be anywhere near full grown. Even a measley 2" Pictus would make short work of ghost or red cherry shrimp. (I speak from actual experience here. I love my Pictus. He has a HUGE mouth, he even did back when he was a "baby" )
If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
