They live with mostly other varieties of tetras (neons and x-rays), pigmy Gouramis, mollies, two Plecos and a yo-yo loach but I've never noticed any of them bullying the catfish. And I've never noticed the catfish sparring among themselves. They live in a very sparsely populated 72g tank that receives frequent water changes and has an excellent fluval external filtering system. No ammonia or nitrites and my nitrates have never been above 10ppm. Water is hard and pH is 7.4. Any thoughts?
Thanks very much-
I have this fish and have not experienced this. Maybe the gouramis are nipping a bit? I'll keep checking on mine and if it happens, will let you know.
