OTHER INFORMATION

The Pictus Catfish is nocturnal, but will adjust to lighted aquariums. It likes to hide out in caves, but will come out for food. This fish makes a good scavenger and has an acute sense of smell. If not fed well enough, they will occasionally pick off a neon or other small fish. The pictus catfish are particularly fond of worms, but will gobble up most meaty foods. They will sometimes over-eat so much that their stomachs will bulge.
