Hi Juzz, regarding the Pictus Catfish. granted it's been over 30 years sinse I've had tropical fish, so I might be a little out dated.

But, I'm getting a new 55 gallon tank for Father's Day. And (*WINK*) I can't wait to get it.

Anyway getting back to what, I wanted to say.

I always loved the Pictus Catfish, I never had any problems with it, other then catching it when I wanted to clean my tank! They tend to get caught in the net, and tear it. The cloth from the nets gets caught in their gills and kills them.

So what I do is, drain the tank. Then I catch them in a water glass, when there's no place for them to go.

Beside's being a beautiful and sleek looking fish; they have never bothered any of my other fish, and their also bottem feeders, so they will help keep your tank clean.

Good Luck, with your new addiction, or hobby. Whichever. you choose to call it
