Pictus Catfish

The Pictus Catfish is a very active fish, which will require quite a bit of swimming space even though they only reach about 5 inches in length - an aquarium of at least 48 inches is recommended. This fish is nocturnal, but it may feel secure enough to come out during the daylight hours if kept in a small group of three to five fish. Sinking pellets as well as frozen bloodworms will be readily accepted by the Pictus cat, and they are eager eaters. Plenty of cover should be provided, but they do enjoy open water areas for swimming. It is not recommended that this fish be kept in an aquarium with fish such as neon tetras or small danios, as those small fish may be eaten.
