  1. Default Most active catfish for a 125 gallon

    I am possibly getting a 125 and the tankmates would be 2 oscars, 2 firemouths, 1 or 2 L200's and maybe some other fish. But I was wondering in your experience what are some active south american catfish that could put up the the current tank mates. As oscars seem to be very messy I would like a catfish to help clean up a little, but I would also be willing to feed it it's own food as scraps probably wouldn't be enough. The most important thing is activity.

    You could see if you can find Dianema urostriatum; the "Flagtail Porthole Cat". They are pretty active.

    So are corydoras in a proper sized school. No idea if they'd get along with the oscar. I do know quite a few species won't like the bare tank that seems to be a must for oscars.
