Asian stinging catfish/heteropneustes fossilis

Unread postby paule » Sat Jun 23, 2018 1:05 pm

Hi all,

I really need some suggestions here. i just got three heteropneustes fossilis / Stinging catfish which are almost 5-6 inches in size, from a local fish market. After reading a bit about i realised they may not be compatible with my other tankmates, which are guppies and yoyo loaches. Also read they could be dangerous and poisonous fish to keep. Any one has any experience in keeping them or have any suggestions. My tank is 280 ltrs which has enough space for these.

Thanks,

Paule
