    Alright, was at my local fish store, usally I do lots of research before I buy any fish, but this guy was flying around upside down almost 100% of the time. I like different fish, weird fish kind of and he fits the bill perfectly, and it was 25 dollars so I snagged it without really doing research. Now that I own it, after searching online, there's not much information on them out there. I got some ideas of size, not a big deal if it gets large, looking to upgrade to at least a 175 gallon tank soon, but thats it. Nothing really on behavior or really food, although I did read it's kind of a filter feeder, but I still offer blood worms and pellets and flakes which make their way down to the bottom of the tank. It mostly just swims in one single spot in the tank, browsing occasionally. Anyone have any information on these guys? Thanks a lot!

    Seen several hits in google on this but he should eat as all catfish eat. He probably likes shrimp pellets, veggies and the same foods as all cats.

    I saw that too. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing anything weird since I usually research before I buy. Got quite the personality though. Apparently they aren't that common either. Fits in the tank well though. Thanks!

    They are not too hard to keep. give it a lot of meaty food but include a smaller part vegetable matter in his diet as well. Avoid giving him too fatty food other than on rare special occasions.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.
