Glass catfish are fun fish to have. Very interesting to watch.

Are they easy to feed? that was a thing that I heard was sometimes hard, they were said to be picky eatersMy therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

I absolutely love my glass cats. I actually ended up with one on accident because the employee at the LFS accidentally put one in with some guppies that I bought and because they are so hard to see neither of us noticed until I went to put them into my aquarium. So I went back the next day and bought 4 more because I knew they needed to be in a school. I had the same worries as you because I had read some things about them being somewhat difficult, but so far I have had no problems. They seem to eat flakes just fine with the occasional treat of bloodworms and brine shrimp and they are growing and doing great! They were very shy at first and seemed to hide out alot but now they are out and about and really fun to watch. They are a really neat addition to my aquarium and I am happy to have them.Niki and Eric

i got 4 of these on wednesday and they seem a fun fish, have no probs with them takin flakes but gonna get them some other stuff on monday just to supplement there diet, i tend to find they hide alot when the light is on but come to life when the light is off, which is fun to watch. Women in pet shop said they would be fine with my ruby shark which i was abit dubious about but after the first few hours it just basically ignored them.
