Catfish Fever

You could say I have an addiction to catfish. My favorite is the raphael catfish. I have a spotted and a striped raphael. I always see my striped one, but the spotted stays hidden. He is extreamly big i have never seen a spotted as big as the one I have. Is there a differnce in prefrence when it comes to these two types of raphaels?

My catfish:
2 Lace catfish
2 Columbian Sharks
2 raphael catfish (Spotted, striped)
1 African bumble bee
1 upside down catfish

My wife thinks I have a catfish addiction. I agree, but i honestly find them to be the most enjoyable to watch when they are out.

I don't know if it a difference in the species preferences but is likely just a preference by the fish itself. So many times I have seen one fish do something totally different than another of the same species. Could just be the fishes personality.

Id say thats a nice little start for a catfish obsession. The columbian sharks are brackish water fish and the african BB cat could get too big for the rest of the group but other than that the list is good.
