Re: catfish for a cichlid tank.
I just bought a red tail cat/shovelnose X thats 3 1/2 inches in w/ cichlids, a knife and anostomus. Bought 2 dz. guppies and all are gone and I saw him out late last night with a full belly. I know i should have bought more than one, but for now.....
anyway any pleco is a good idea...hypostomus, albino or royal or blue eyed (If you can find one) any one that's gets good size.don't know how well any farlowella or whiptails may go in there. I've seen some around.
Red tail botia, Gold banded or tigers ,many different botias can hold their own w/cichlids Also, If they are smaller, some large cories may be ok for a while.
