firstly no fish will die solely on the fact of being alone. its fine to wait a bit and then get more fish. now are all of your fish not eating? Or is it just 2? How many fish did you have in your tank before all your catfish? how big is your tank? I boght one ghost cat a week a go, but no more. the difference between our situations, is that you put 3 in at a time, i put in one. mine eats fine. so far i'm starting to think they do better by themselves AT FIRST. why? because my ghost cat has no opposition in the tank, everythings for him. but this may not be correct. the reason may also be because i have duck weed, small clovers that float on the water and multiply like mad. in large clusters, duckweed provides formidable shade, while leaving other tank sectors light for mt other plants. i notice my catfish stays beneath the duckweed. the calmer and more suitable your fish enviroment is, the more less threatened the catfish will be. perhaps some mere adjustments would fix your problem. after moving some stuff around and implanting duck weed, try the method i use. its much more tempting to the fish. you know those really small suction things that suck up water and come with test kits? use one of those, and a small container. squirt some tank water into the container, drop some flakes in,stir it around with the suction thingy, suck it up, and put your suction thingy close to you fish. squirt out the flakes, and they should go for it. hpe this helps!
