    Hey, somebody who keeps oil cats! I've been looking for someone who keeps these guys.
    Question: do you think one of those could eat chili rasboras? I had some rasboras vanish after I added the oil cats... One is still left, but he's the biggest one.

    Ever fed mosquito larvae to these guys? If not, I highly suggest you try it. Stick a bucket of water outside for about a week, then net out the 'skeeter larvae and dump them in. No washing needed, they're clean things. No spines, no legs, no shells, survive if not eaten... Awesome food.
    I once caught an oil cat partly in a net and offered him a bunch of wrigglers so he could get dibs before the others. He ate two dozen in about seven seconds and then looked like he ate an entire pea. Freaked me out a bit.

    Do you think 6 would fit in a 20 long though? Seems like a bit much, as I do want other fish.

    Do you have any honeycombs you could spare. An EoTD killed all of mine. ;_;

    Nice name change, haha. Maybe I should change mine to "perugiae"

    Hey, do you know if how to pronounce it's name? I've always called it peh-roo-geeh-uh, but could it be peh-roo-gay?

    I saw something tonight I've never seen before. Today I got two new ones to replace two that jumped and died (which may have been related to the fighting...) Well ate least I got a female, so I can potentially breed them in the future. Well the new male was doing this odd sort of dance around and with the female. It was swimming against its side and in circles too. Of course this could just be new tank behavior, but I thought it was interesting.

    BTW, can I have contact info of that breeder you mentioned?

    So I witnessed two fights within the last week between the two big male honeycombs. Their homes have always been right next to eachother, but now I think they can't live together any longer. The second fight happened (which just happened a few minutes ago now) for an obvious reason: food. The bloodworms I put in tonight stuck in a clump, and one of them took the whole thing. The other one, ignoring all the free ones around him, thought "hey, I want that food" and went after it. They both tumbled around a bit, then stopped. However, even (right) after all the food was gone, they had a fight. It looked the same as before: they twirled around trying to bite each other, and sometimes did get a hold of the other's jaw. When not in combat, they had their spines all the way out and looked very intense. Now one of them is exile. One might have to find a new place soon. Ever see anything like that?

    This is what I found: "It remains still unclear whether it represents a distinct species or just a variety of Centromochlus (formerly Tatia) perugiae"


    I think many people might have the altae and just don't realize it.
