Rated 5 out of 5 by Silurus Great Catfish!
These catfish have good looking markings and are fun to watch! Yet they do like to hide A LOT. Oh and by the way not all catfish are nocturnal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackal82 Awesome Catfish but loves to hide.
This is a really cool looking catfish and is very fun to watch. The only thing to these catfish is that they like to hide a lot, at least when the lights are on. Once you turn off the lights they are extremely active, swimming all over and eating everything in site. If you are interested in adding these to your aquarium, make sure that you don't put any fish in there that are smaller then them because they will eat it. Other than that small negative they are one of my favorite fish. I've had many in my time and they do get pretty large so be sure to put in a large decoration for them to hide in. Overall they are a great fish and i'd recommend them to anyone!!

Rated 3 out of 5 A big Hoover vacuum
the title describes this fish, if it remotly resymbles somthing that can be swollowed this fish will try,
this fish has swallowed some 3-4 ich chiclids in my tank, and the fish is a little ove 6 inches,
it unsusefuly tryed to eat my blue crayfish, somthing it only tryed once, boath live in harmony now
they grow at a slowr rate then most catfish,
actuly i had it in a goldfish comunity for a long time, till i changes that over to a small tropical fish comunity
most times if your tank is well feed and healthy you will not see this fish, it hides all the time till their is 0 light what so ever (unless their is a "bit size" fish added), despite its large size it can fit into small caves, and will try so make sure the cave are big enough for it not to get stuck
only recomended for big fish companions
