If I set up a tank for Pictus Catfish and one of my guppies happens to jump into the tank with it. will the pictus eat him before he dies from water condition issues?? has anyone ever had their guppie land into a tank with a catfish and become food rather than rotting fish scum?

Yep, dinner time. I had a pictus years ago and they grow big fast. A big goldfish it could not swallow so it sucked its eyeball out, no kidding. Some other fish just disappeared before I witnessed this. Don't worry the goldfish lived a long life in a pond afterwards and was a prolific breeder to thousands of fry.

Why would it die from water conditions?
icture catfish try to eat anything that can fit in their mouth. During the day, they are less active. Try to get him out A
I was told since guppies are a soft and cat are a hard water fish I could not have them in the same tank.

but im not sure if the issue for it being lunch time and all
