also at petco.

stone catfish. Has anyone ever heard of these? It is the cutest catfish I have ever seen. Its as small as the shrimp right now and according to the description on the tank, only grows to be about an inch and a half. I was thinkng of putting one in the shrimp tanks. Do you think they would eat the babies?

Id try to get a pic but its so small I cant get the ipad to focus on it in the bag. Im sure as soon as I let it go in my large fish tank I wont see it for weeks.

ittybitty teeny tiny.


They also had blackberry shrimp

There's a good chance they will eat some. http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/hara-jerdoni/

This should give a better idea. I backed up a bit and caught a couple other fish. That is a baby beta and a baby ram so you see how little he is in comparison

Thanks Loach. Oh no it says it prefers to be kept in groups!!! I specifically asked the lady at petco if they should be kept in groups and she said no! Damn the petco fish guy for not being there. They have a very knowledgable fish guy but unfortunately he cant be there 24/7

I had 2 I just gave away! They are like hill stream loaches! They need high oxygenated water and fast moving too. They also eat blood worms. They like a lot of current. I don't think you'll have that in a shrimp tank. They also are pretty much gone during the day, like not even there. They only come out at night.

Never trust the petco people.

In shrimp tanks, avoid Noah's ark syndrome.

Putting two of every species in your tank, "like Noah did to preserve the animals".

Lol yeah. Just adding other things on impulse. It's not smart for any tank, especially shrimp tanks.

Yeah Hara Jerdoni is like mini raphs....they'll eat anything they can suck up and they feed just as ferociously as other catfish. Like most I think they are nocturnal....thats when mine always came out to feed.

Hara Jerdoni - it's a native fish to my country and especially from my near my home town, typical behavior - eats anything and everything - do not put shrimps in the same tank as them! babies will become instant snack! prefers live food and comes from slow moving riverine and pond area in the lower gangetic planes(north india) and in an' around cauvery river basin in south india. Ideal biotope is - silty bottom, and silty waterline, some crypts as underwater vegetation and over headed by hygrophila pinnatifida. Flow ranges from very slow to medium and they stay very close to the banks on ponds with other species like dario and badis.
