Tropical - Fish - Pictures .com

This is a tropical fish site for all tropical fish enthusiasts from beginner to expert. It has some nice tropical fish pictures and will hopefully have something of interest for all freshwater and marine fish keepers. These tropical fish pages provide some information about some of my favourite fish, along with tropical fish pictures of them. I have kept fish for many years now, ranging from community to marine. Over this period I have been drawn towards catfish, and the cichlids, which I must confess, through there antics have become my favourites. I now keep African and American cichlids, along with some catfish and plecs.

Catfish tropical fish tank setup

Catfish come in many sizes, and in some cases need a very large tank. If you are keeping a large catfish like a Redtail catfish or Marmoratus catfish then it might be best kept in a fairly bare tank on its own, unless the tank mates are also large, otherwise they will be eaten. Some smaller catfish like Synodontis catfish can be aggressive towards each other, and are best kept in groups. Smaller catfish can be kept with other tank mates without the fear of being eaten. African Synodontis catfish like Multipunctatus, ( cuckoo ), or Petricola can be kept with African Rift Lake cichlids, and like a lot of rocks in the tank to provide, hiding places. Ocean or sea rock is good because it acts as a natural buffer for the ph, along with a coral sand or coral gravel substrate again helping to buffer the ph. Other catfish like Corydoras are peaceful and can be kept with community fish or discus and prefer a lower ph to the synos, around neutral or slightly acidic.
