pictis catfish
How fast do they grow and do they eat ghost shrimp. i Have had 1 for about 8 months and it still is only 4 inches long and now i got 2 more and they eat but do they eat ghost shrimp??? They will swim right past feeder shrimp. But i guess that is what the black ghost knife is for.

It's possible for the pictus to eat the ghost shrimp. Pictus are generally nocturnal hunters. How big are your shrimp? They can get upwards of 4"

they are only 1/2 an inch and i think my tinfoil barb might be having a go at them because my black ghost knife is only 4-5 inches long

I've had 1.5cm fish attacking 2cm shrimp. :P
