My frankie -- catfish
Frankie, my catfish, whom ive had for over a year -congrats to myself- and I'm finally wondering... What kind is he?
He's really fat from eating (I had just fed him, that's why he's chunky looking, haha, but if you really know pond catfish, you know they do this and it shouldn't hurt him)
Ok, so, he's a pond catfish, caught as a baby, stunted growth, isn't very huge (cept his belly)
He doesn't have a forked tail, is dark colored, but when exposed to light for a long time he turns lighter) his belly is white.
Hes with his girlfriend (Jeremy) the minnow, theyve been together since I got them. He's super fun! And he eats from a "fish bowl" I made from a sea shell so he can find his food easier. He gets like 5 pellets a day. He poops a lot, and his little rock cave is full of it, and when I took this shot, he had just whipped his tail all around like he does (I figure it's a defense mechanism in the fish world to stir up mud so you cant be seen? Or to burrow.. Whatever) but he's not spotted, it's his poop :/
I cleaned the tank like three days ago when I moved it to the new location.
Anyways!!!! I think he's a charm and I wanna know the type!
BY THE WAY: the picture I have of him by my hand, he jumped out of his water change tank when I was puttin him back in the water after cleaning the tank, and I was like, "oh ican hand measure him!" I didn't have him out just because
