Talking got a new bushnose catfish!

i got this pretty cool bushnose catfish from an LFS in Sunnyvale (California)...GREAT place. The guy was really nice and showed me all the fish, and got me a b/n catfish. a little problem though...he's kinda red at the sides near the gills, not sure.. Anyways, I will try to post pics once I get them!

if he has red spots you should consider moving him to a separate tank and treating with melafix by API, should be available at your LFS. I had a clown pleco that had red spots that went unnoticed and died :'(


1 29g - one red tailed shark, an opaline gourami, and a bristlenose pleco
