What catfish do you currently keep?

I read on another post that Susankat had nine species of dwarf plecos and that got me to thinking.... WHICH ONES Ms. Kat?!

And which catfish do all of you currently have?

As for me:
7 Ten-twelve year old clown loaches, Hillstream loach, Synodontis polli, Synodontis petracola, Stone catfish, "Julii" cory, red Venezuelan cory, Skunk cory, habrosus cory.

Been setting up too many tanks of late. MTS is hitting me really hard at the moment. Looking for long finned bushynoses... and micro-loaches... and...

Re: What catfish do you currently keep?

Everyone has lots of goodies!

Ms. Kat: I couldn't find anything under Socolof except Pseudotropheus socolofi, Thorichthys socolofi and Hyphessobrycon socolofi - no catfish. As for all your Hypancistrus... NICE!!! I love farlowellas and whiptails too! Breeding groups eh... Why don't you live closer!! (by the way, I am loving my Hillstream loach - I may have to set up a psuedo river-psuedo species tank just for them!)

Mr. Bandit: I saw a full grown albino & regular longfin ancistrus at a store in their display tank... the guy handed me a towel to wipe my drool off the front of the tank. They were amazing! I never like albino fish, but these seemed almost goldish. I want both!!

Marshall: By Angelicus you mean Kubotai? I love those!!

C-Lover: Is a java cat some humungous thing usually on dinner plates? And the L25... gorgeous cat! Did you have any money left to feed yourself after you bought it?

Catfisher: All three years old... do you own a lake? I'm guessing you keep them with some other monsters.

OK,
2 - 12 or 13 inch Rhino plecos
1 - 5 inch Rhino pleco
3 - Aspidoras
7 - Similis cories
2 - Albino cories
And probably a couple hundred BN plecos, long fin and regular fin, albino and black.

Re: What catfish do you currently keep?

Hey Botia I got the L25 for free :D My uncle pretty much works and runs a breeding section o the farm and got me a free 4" L25 last time been keepin it till it's now a good 10"? As for the java catfish I frankly can't id it XD Caught it in a reservoir, brought it to a fish shop and the lady called it a java catfish. Looks a tad like a spotted Raphael though but I'm quite sure it isn't... :P Psst psst got another L25 10" for 300$ XD now I'm poor :P

Re: What catfish do you currently keep?

Oh, okay. He is a little slow, but loves watching fish.

I also have Emerald Green, Orange Laser, and Sterbai corys in 2 different tanks.

Re: What catfish do you currently keep?

I have C.julii 12 pieces and C schwartzi, 13 pieces, in different tanks alone.
You have not done anything yet.
Now I had the idea to add some C. paleatus. A buddy at the pond grows constantly paleatus.
Maybe let the inspiration? If there was hope?

A lot of things I do not know. Learning has no end

A cat that likes fish? I'd say that is a fish-cat!

The question is, do the fish like to watch the cat?
