If you can get the food close to him that way great. I just drop algae disks in at night time. I even put the camera on night vision and saw him come out and steal the disk from the Cory's and disappear back into this hidy hole.

What kind of catfish did you get??
I use a turkey baster to feed my catfish, it works very well. He hangs out in a driftwood cave area and I shoot some food in there with the turkey baster and BAM!, it's gone.
Anything I drop into the tank at night I know he gets but half the fun of having him is watching him eat, hence the turkey baster. Their mouths are HUGE.

I looked it up and it appears there is NO picture of one in our profiles. Maybe you could take a pic and upload it into the profile for future reference. Post one here for us to see!!
