"I love how peaceful fish are, that is why I got my second tank which was a jewul 190 litres with built in filter and pump. It is in the corner of my room and the main attraction to my tank is my approx. 7-8 inch pangasius catfish who has no name as I couldnt decide on one. I have other catfish and mollies in my tank, but he is my favourite. I got him at birth and now he is around 3 and half years old. I wanted to go to a marine set up within my tank but I would never be able to give away my catfish. My pangasius likes to eat flakes, pellets, algae pellets, bloodworms, dafnia, brine shrimp.. basically anything which is smaller than his head. I bought a new plec about a month ago, it was only in the tank 1 hour until my pangasius had eaten him =(...However, that will show me not to buy anymore fish as small as him haha..) He likes to be hidden and has his own territory within the tank. He sits under my filter, but when I walk in my room he will come up to the top as he knows he may get fed (greedy!). He is very chunky and his eyes are starting to glaze over. I think he may start to become blind. When I clean out the tank, which takes ages as well, I try not to take very long as the longer my hand is in the tank cleaning it, the more distressed he gets. Pangasius catfish are very 'bashful' fish as they seem jumpy and skitterish. Mine seems to swim as fast as he can around the tank banging into everything. Therefore, I would recommend taking out all orniments carefully when cleaning so that they do not injure themselves. I have also started taking mine out of the tank when cleaning as he calms down a lot whem I'm not in the water fiddling with things. I have been able to hand feed him as well, believe it or not. When he is not so scared I will hover my hand over the top of the water so he thinks it's just normal feeding time. Then when he gets near the top I get some peas and give them to him. He loves peas for some strange reason. I have been doing this since he was a baby, that's why he will do it. If you are new to these types of fish I would recommend doing a bit of homework on them. I am only 17 and I'm still trying to get it right after having fish for most of my life. So do some research."
