    What water conditions do I need to have for Asian Stone Catfish?

    I have a 5 gallon tank with 10 life forms, but I recently learned that 2 types favour opposite water hardness and ph, so I'm wondering what kind of parameters Stone Catfish prefer so that I can return the appropriate one to my LFS.

    Update on my spotted raphael catfish.

    Ryuk has apparently been doing fine and dandy after I posted that other thing. If you check what I've posted before you might see I thought he wasn't okay. He quite literally knocked over two shells on his nightly workout recently and honestly good on him. Here's a picture

    Should I replace my lost corycat?

    I lost one of my three peppered corycats today. Since my once tiny school is now a pair, should I replace the lost cory? If so, will a new peppered cory school well with the other two (who I’ve had for about a year)? I also have 3 oto cats, 5 harlequin rasboras, and a honey Gourami in the tank...

    Spotted raphael catfish seems to be dying

    Hello. I've been seeing an issue with my spotted raphael catfish recently. I cleaned the tank recently and he has been getting comfy face first/face up or horizontally between the tank walls / a rock and moves not as much as he used to and it's a bit worrying. I got him roughly 8/9 years ago...

    L181 pleco and Corydoras Venezuela Black

    I have bought 5 L181 pleco - naturally they are quarantined in a separate tank, but when they are ready to be moved out of quarantine I want to place them together with my Corydoras Venezuela Black. Is this a good combo? I don’t want to risk my corys lives or their fins being bitten of

    Hi everyone. We have had a synodontis catfish for most of our fish keeping life. I came downstairs this morning to see he had passed away.

    Help!! Synodontis Nigrita or Ocellifer?

    Hey y'all! I was under the impression that my two fish, Shade and Midnight, were Upside Down Catfish (Synodontis Nigriventis) as they were SOLD AS SUCH, WITH MY NIGRIVENTIS. Looking further into it, they do not match the coloration or shape, so I went sleuthing. As far as I can see, I believe...

    A species that needs to be taken in.

    Has anyone ever heard of Aspidoras? I think these would be a great substitute for those who want Corydoras, but want a different body shape. They are interesting catfish, and I really wish to hear from one who has Aspidoras!

    Hi in the future I want a tank with bumblebee catfish with some halfbeaks. Do you guys think it will be a safe setup?
