Well that explains what happened to my ghost shrimp. One day they're happily rambling along the tank, eating bloodworms, and the next morning, one died and that evening, the other disappeared. Someone must have had munchies.
I don't think I would dare to put him in the cichlids. That's like the Tank of Doom. Anything I put in there that supposely they won't eat, they wind up eating. Tossing anything into that tank is like throwing a rat into a piranah tank. They go into a crazy feeding frenzy and whatever it is is gone within seconds. That's what I get for pulling fish from a lake! lol
The catfish, anyway, eats everything I put in the tank - algae tablets, bloodworms, anything that falls on the bottom - or more appropriately, that falls near his little temple decor - is his. Sloop - gone. Very active.
I saw some pictures of other upside down catfish with his same coloring, it's more like the red is the white areas showing through, like albino almost.
He won't bother the snail or bamboo shrimp I suppose? So far they all huddle up together.
