Diet - These fish are very easy to feed, they will eat both meat and plant matter. In the warm waters of South America they will be found eating insects (dragonfly larvae), snails, small fish and algae.
Compatibility - Pictus catfish aren’t aggressive, but they are opportunistic feeders. This means that while they don’t have specific territories within the tank, they may still try to eat any small fish or invertebrates that come near them. Suitable tank mates are rainbows, danios ect.
Our juvenile fish will vary from the image shown as our images are to show the potential colours and markings when at a fully mature size.
