Hi guys!
I need the opinion of all you catfish lovers. I have three 50 gallon (189 liters) tanks up and am purchasing a 150gal (568 liters) next week. I am wondering which of my catfish can live together peaceably.

I have in one tank (already peaceable with each other)

1 Siamese Bumblebee Catfish (Pseudomystus siamensis)

1 Marble Sailfin Pleco (again, not sure which exact one he is , stayed at 8")

In the third tank are various Corydoras and a baby Marble Sailfin Pleco

So who gets to move to the big tank?

Hi Reva
for your soon to be 125 gal tank i would put the plecs, featherfin Syno and the bumblebee, and devide your corys between the other 3 tanks and enlarge on the populations of each species.

I'd also include the pictus in the big tank, maybe even add a few more...

Mick, when you say enlarge on the population of each species, do you mean the corys?
Matt are you pretty sure that the Syno wont hurt the Pictus?
Also, will the marble plec not hurt the chocolate? I will keep the baby marble in a 50 until he's bigger....
Thank you for the input
