Honeycomb catfish!

Just picked up two honeycomb catfish from aquariumfish.net! They came this morning. One of them ran off and hid right away and I haven't seen come out yet, but the other one fell asleep for the day on top of my plants so I managed to get a good shot. He hasn't eaten yet, but I hear they go practically catatonic during daylight hours and is probably still settling in, so I'm not worried yet. Here's a pic, isn't he adorable ?

That's the only good shot I have so far sadly. The second catfish came out of hiding on the second day, but they've been hiding in the plants so far while getting used to the tank. I managed to get a squirt of brine shrimp down to them that they gobbled up, so that's progress! I added some bamboo logs for them to hide in, but my dwarf chain loaches have taken them over instead, leaving one catfish to sleep in my amazon sword and the other to sit on one of my frogs' head in my lawn pennywort :P

Missed this before, but they're in my 75 gallon planted community tank that's listed in my profile

Got some more pics today, they seem to have staked out these spots as their permanent places until they get more used to things.

Here's the one who's taken a liking to my amazon sword...


And here's the one that likes burying himself in my lawn pennywort:
