Thanks for the compliments on the fish, guys.
He's super active, too. But oh boy does he eat a lot.
I actually planned to have a catfish and Angelfish tank, as my previous Vulture catfish wasn't aggressive towards anything. This guy is different, and after he ate an Angelfish, I had to change that plan. I use Guppies as dither fish, and the catfish have become the focal fish.
I try my best to keep him with a fat belly, as he only seems to be aggressive when it's not.

I had one previously in a 75 gallon and traded him to a larger tank owner when he got to be about 9 inches.
