    Hi

    I have a talking catfish in a tank with tetras I have had him for 2 years and he has always been peaceful apart from the last 2 months when it has eaten 4 of my tetras. I am currently cycleing a 115 litre tank which I am going to transfer the catfish into.
    Does anyone know what fish I can keep in this size tank with the cat?
    I have been told so much conflicting information I dont know what to get!
    Fish ive been told to keep/not to keep with the cat in this size tank are:
    Angelfish,gourmais,cichlids,barbs,fantails,and mollys
    My brain is bleeding from too much info help!

    If it's a talking catfish, just ask him who he'd like in the tank with him!

    Terribly sorry, I couldn't resist...do "talking catfish" have another name?...

    Yeah, I bet you'd give him an ear (gill?) full!

    I have 2 Raphael Catfish in my 55 Gl tank with many tetras and have never had a problem with them attacking other fish. However you need to have a good hiding place for them as they are most comfortable during the day in a hiding spot that is dark. I have seen once or twice that if they do not have a good resting spot they can get aggressive while searching for one.

    Their origin is Columbia so the dialect is probably hard to pick up lol.
