Thread: Glass Catfish?

  1. Default Glass Catfish?

    0 Not allowed!
    Not sure if this is the right section, but I had a few questions about my new glass catfish.

    I just bought one, and the petsmart person told me to feed them blood worms. However, whenever I seem to put blood worms inside the tank it only eats one or two of them, however, my other fish (glo-fish) attack the blood worms and eat like 20 of them. So one day I decided to just put regular fish food in there (because I know the glo-fish like it but the catfish isn't supposed to be fond of it.) However when I put the fish food in it, the catfish went crazy and ate a ton of it.

    I'm a bit confused. Should I just keep feeding it regular fish food? Or should I just feed it bloodworms?

    I know this is a new tank and you're excited but my advice would be to follow the advice fishmommie gave in your other thread and return your current livestock to your lfs.

    It simply isn't practical to keep a catfish in a 10 gallon aquarium, let alone an unicycled one.

    In addition, glass cats are really susceptible to ich, and they really ought to be in schools, but that tank is too small for a school. Trust me, research stuff before you buy, or you'll really regret it. Speaking from experience here.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

    No they're not! They may seem to be because they're most commonly kept in high stress situations like this poor fish.
