I have a planted 15 US (gal) long--
My GIANT peppered catfish was caught spawning this evening while I was adjusting some plants. I noticed a number of eggs fall into the gravel, and a couple were turned into an omelette by a neon tetra in perfect position when the eggs spurted out.
Assuming the eggs are viable (because I'm not sure if the catfish's mate is male or female, though I did see some T positioning) what are my chances however unlikely that Im going to have baby cats in my tank?
I might add I have a self-sustaining ghost shrimp population in my tank.... How, I don't know. My fear is that SINCE baby ghost shrimp can somehow survive in my tank, baby catfish might be able to survive in my tank. My tank is too small for a bunch of 3.5 inch fish!
Do you think I'm going to have to put up with baby cats????
