It's a good idea to grow your food, but for some fish, food like flakes and pellets are best
What kinds of food would you recommend growing for the catfish? And yeah i plan to have other food as well.

Yeah I heard about bloodworms. Would they grow in the tank or how would that work? Also what about small fish?

I would breed the blood worms in a separate tank, they won't last in the tank

Cool, what about plants? I dot want to overwhelm the bottom feeders but want some live plants as well. Should I stick with java moss or are there others I can use?

Cool, I've heard a lot anout java moss and fern but will check out java mood and anubis. What are good small fish that a catfish could eat bt would also be able to breed and feed off algae and shrimp?
