    I would do the heat treatment, but I cannot afford a tank heater. I have seen them online for $4 but with shipping, I think it would come to late to treat him.

    I've been using Tetra Ick Gaurd since yesterday. He's losing his appetite though, and he was breathing heavily when I woke up this morning. I put the filter back in (without the cartridge) just to get some oxygen back in the tank and he started breathing better.

    I really hope he lives. Everybody is telling me "oh it's just a fish" "you can get another one" etc. but to me, he's not. He's a family member, just like someone else with a dog or a cat. When I caught him, I took the responsibility of caring for him no matter what, so I can't just let him die like that.

    There's just no way that you can say that there wouldn't be as many deaths, keeping a predatory fish with prey fish.

    I could never prevent him from eating smaller fish just by feeding him more. It's in his nature and I'm pretty sure he enjoys chasing live fish much more than eating man-made pellets.

    Default What species is this catfish?

    While that may be true, the pellets are healthier for it. The ingredients aren't man made.

    Feeding dead fish to other fish as a food source isn't a great idea. Best to gut load feeder fish to get the nutrition of staple food into fish that wouldn't otherwise eat the prepared food. I don't know how good it would be to gut load a feeder then freeze it for future use.

    I've never fed him dead fish. I put live feeder fish in the tank for him to eat, but rarely. The fish could've been the reason he got ich.

    And I didn't meant the ingredients were man made, I just meant that there aren't pellets in the wild that he would eat.

    How big of a pond would he need? The one I currently have is only about 60 gallons.

    You are keeping an eight inch fish in a 10 gallon tank?

    1. That's incredibly cruel of you.
    2. There are TWO of them in your photo.
    3. No wonder they're sick.

    Forgive my bluntness but I find posts like this frustrating.

    Please be responsible with your decisions. Treat the fish then return it to where you caught it...OR provide adequate housing for the species you have absolute control over (and therefore...responsibility).

    Agreed on all but returning it to the wild. It's illegal to do so.
