As an old river fisherman, I would note that sometimes in rivers,,especially at turns,, the current is often greater than at mid channel although the video does seem to suggest that the current at the time video was recorded,,does indicate slower movement judging by particulate matter floating past.
I have been observing catfish in aquariums for some time ,and I am beginning to get on board with others who feel that lack of water movement near the bottom of aquariums along with sharp substrates are possibly contributing to barbel erosion on these fish.
Considering these fish feed mostly from the bottom where much bacterial activity takes place,, it is not so much of a stretch I believe ,that stagnant or water with little movement could indeed lead to bacterial infections that work to erode the barbels.
Would welcome others thoughts ?
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
