"Hello, I am a big fan of Red-tailed Catfish and I have been doing tons of research on them. There is a problem though, there is very little information readily available on the diseases and health concerns for Red-tails. I need an expert to answer my question, and after reading the chats and posts on your site, I think you just might be the perfect people to contact. Red-tailed Catfish have a brilliant natural resistance to disease, but I was wondering how far this can be taken. Red-tails are one of very few fish that are extremely affectionate towards their owners and other people. They love being petted and can quickly learn to be hand fed, but the question comes up after this. Most fish and other animals can contract human diseases, that we may not even know are on us. These diseases can often be very dangerous to other animals, and this is why my question happens to be: 'how much human interaction can Red-tailed Catfish handle, before it begins to negatively impact their health (assuming other thank conditions are perfect, and the people are healthy and clean) ?' I thank whoever it is who is reading this, and am hoping to hear back from you as soon as possible. Thanks again. P.S. Just to answer any unmet questions, I do not own a Red-tailed Catfish currently, but am hoping to get one in the future (so possibly 8-10 years from now, I just want to get all my research done before entering into a challenge this great). Thanks again, and sorry for writing so much. . . .writing short is something I am not very great at."
