    I hear ya Kevin. The otos have survived for almost 2 weeks now will see how it goes.

    What do you think the catfish would eat corydoras? I have seen some big corydoras at the LFS.

    I bet Corys would be safe. They're kind of tall and would probably be awkward to attempt to eat.

    Otos might be fast enough to dart away, when the big cat approaches. My Otos won't swim away from anything, because there aren't any predators in their tank (they rarely swim away from my hand these days), but it's possible that instinct kicks in for them, when something like your cat is present. They could be much more on their game and more aware of their cohabitants.

    makes sense about the otos being quick. Compared to the cardinals they are much faster.

    So corydoras it is. Next GCAS meeting I keep my eyes open for some sweet corydoras. I have always wanted some.

    When I first had my Otos, they were always startled by something... and they were so fast. When I changed my substrate, that was a pita. It took me forever to catch those suckers. lol

    Good luck, man! I was going to get some Cories, before I got my GBRs. They're pretty cool fish and I'd love to have a school of them sometime.

    I sure appreciate this post. I have 2 in my tank with my goldfish. When I 'rehome' the goldfish to another tank I was planning on getting a new variety....but I'd rather not be feeding the catfish 'extra'. Since the goldfish eat everything, and I do mean everything... I put a juice glass in the gravel & when I see the catfish out after 'dark' I put some pellets in the glass and under a feature. So far, so good

    Just got myself a bumblebee cat last thursday. Glad to see this topic. I've been feeding mine bloodworms and tropical fish sinking pellets. I haven't seen him eat but he comes out every night, is very active and looks healthy.
