Tiger Shovelnose Catfish-such beauties
For those that like predatory Catfish, Tiger Shovelnoses are a must! If my internet coneection could handle it, I would send a picture of Mefisto, my 15cm shovelnose. Contrary to research I have done, shovelnoses will eat tablet and dried foods in addition to chunks of meat and fish.
Mefisto lives happily with an oscar, a Striped Talking Catfish, a large Three-spot gourami and 2 silver dollars.
Shovelnoses are striking when kept in subtle lighting and with driftwood. They also look great in planted tanks, but my current setup doesn't allow for this at all. :)
