Ask a store associate for details. Catfish typically prefer to be in groups of three or more. However, larger species can be kept individually. Some species of catfish are useful in keeping the aquarium clean and free from algae. As omnivores, catfish eat both plant and animal matter, including prepared foods, small live foods and certain vegetables. If you must handle your catfish be aware that they have stiff, sharp spines on their fins that can inflict painful wounds.
