| || | I Love My Raphael Cat!!
So about two or three weeks ago I bought a little Raphael Catfish for my african cichlid tank. I ran across them in a YouTube video and did a bit if research and decided he would have a fighting chance. Fido, as we have started calling him, is doing fantastic! He isn't as shy as what I expected. He knows when feeding time is and he's out every day twice a day for it. I feed him sinking shrimp pellets along with some blanched veggies every once in a while. I was a bit worried when we added a blue crayfish to the tank (it's a 60g) but strangely enough they get along pretty well. Most days the eat side by side as long as there are enough pellets to go around. Today though, the crayfish attempted to steal Fido's pellet, and I guess he grabbed the little spines all down Fido's back because the crayfish took off. I don't think we'll have anymore disputes between them lol. I just wanted to let you guys know, just incase anyone is on the fence about getting one, I definitely recommend this little guy.
