So I recently added a Ghost Catfish to my 29 gallon tank. I had not done my research before I bought one, and the girl at the lfs said that it was fine to get only one. After going online to research I found that they should be in groups, so I went back to the lfs and got 2 more, putting them to 3. Now, I just added the new 2 a couple of days ago. The two newer ones have a hiding place and I don't know where it is. They don't come out until after I turn out the light and I have not been able to feed them since I got them.
I am having trouble feeding all of my Catfish, but once I nudge the other out of his hiding place I manage to get him a brine shrimp or two before the other fish come along and snag it. I don't want to lose these catfish, they're really neat! My tank is lightly planted right now. I read on a previous topic that they need shade as they don't tolerate light well, so would a floating plant provide them some better coverage? I have a very low-lit tank as it is...it is a single 20 watt bulb.
Also, these fish don't really school together at all in my tank...why is that?
