ID help on catfish
Hi, just 'inherited' 29 gal tank with variety of fish in it. Wondering what our cool catfish is.
So we know whether to get him friends and who he won't grow to eat... Making rehoming decisions...
The past owner guessed pictus but does that tell me how big he'll get? And he doesn't have the spots all the pics show... Could he be pimelodus maculatus?
Thanks for the help! He is beautiful silvery,very long whiskers.
We will be moving him to a 55 gal once it is stable. And wondering if he'd be okay to stay with the giant pleco( will be posting to I'd that too) he came with? There is also a shabunkin(will be rehomed), african dwarf frog, and betta with him too. I was thinking to keep the betta and frog separate from him would be better?
If he is a pictus, have I read correctly here to 1) get him at least two more of his kind, and 2) that Zebra danios, mollies, pleco, and platys will be okay with them. The prior owners got him last aug and say he's doubled in size. Thanks so much for the help!
