Catfish For 30 Gallon Long
Im hoping to stock my 30 gallon breeder with a catfish or 2.
Dimensions: 36" L x 18" D x 12" High
Originally I had asked about Pictus catfish but my tank was deemed too short for them c:
So I was wondering if there were other types of catfish similar to Pictus, like body shape and activity level but more suited to my tank. Im hoping to make this a specimen tank so I only want 1 or 2 catfish unless a group is needed. I've been looking around and havent really found anything.
Im not looking for Otocinclus, Corydoras, or Plecos. Mostly because I have/have had Otos and corys and a single pleco in a tank would seem dull :P
My tank is not set up yet so Im looking for ideas right now. I want to know what to stock before setting up so I can scape the tank to match the fish ^^
I haven't kept them personally, but Synodontis nigriventris might be an option, the profile here doesn't mention tank size, but Synodontis nigriventris (Upside-down Catfish) — Seriously Fish says 30″ x 12″ x 12″ is big enough for a small group of three or four
Ill look into them, thank you ^^
you could also try b/n plecos (bristlenose plecos). I've had great experience with them. They are dwarf catfish, and you should be able to keep about a pair in a 30 long. However, you will need a much bigger tank for two males. You could go with 2 females or one of each sex. They will readily breed in a community aquarium, provided they have a safe place to keep their young. Look into it :)
Thank you all, I've decided to make this tank into a paludarium so catfish wont work anymore ;)
