Just Got: RTSN Hybrid Catfish
Just brought home a new Red Tailed Shovel Nose Hybrid. Ive had catfish before and I have to say this one is behaving strange. He wont take any of the hiding spots at the bottom of the tank just swims face first into the output from my canister filter. (most catfish in my ex. like facing upstream) Not eating today as to be exspected, but by swimming at the top of the tank hes getting some looks from my Arowana which is making me quit nervous. Hes in the tank with a well fed Arowana and an Oscar. He is about half their length and could more than hold his own..if he got into the cover of the logs definatly..

What to do..I hate these expensive oopsys

You must have a huge tank, those are some pretty big fish.

Sounds like a nice set up! There was one of these for sale at my lfs not to long ago. It was about 2 inches long and very interesting little fish
