Welcome to Fishforum.com.:wave:

I wouldn't recommend getting a catfish anymore. Your tank is overstocked already, not to mention all your fish are still on growing phase.

4 ft tank is enough for only the Red Devil.

yeah you already have more than enough fish in that tank.

bf2king 03-24-2008 11:16 AM

to keep the amount of fish already in the tank an absolute minal is a 125 gallon. now thats with bio-load and everyone haveing their adequate space. ntm adult red devils will fight anyone and anything in under 100 gallons. either one oscar or 1 red devil is what id keep out of that stock list.
