    in Romance

    What’s the newest trend, taking hold of the media, as far as online dating scams? Catfishing! Based on a stunning documentary and hit MTV show, a Catfish is someone who creates an online profile, pretending to be someone they're not, with stolen photos and false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances. After the documentary came out, which was about one man catching his Catfish, a flood of reports came in, explaining how this is fairly common and happens to a frighteningly large amount of people! In this episode of SWAK, we’re going to be exploring why Catfishes feel the need to be play-act someone they’re not, as well as how they elaborately deceive us. Whether you’ve Catfished someone, or been on the receiving end, we want to hear your story! And if you’ve never heard of Catfishing before, you’ll definitely want to tune in to these crazy tales! This is definitely a not-to-miss, trending episode!

    I will be discussing the PICTUS CATFISH

    in Pets

    The Pictus Catfish is a memeber of the antenna catfish group and usually has a pale to gray body with a black spotted pattern. The pectoral fins are serrated, so it is recommended that a glass bowl or cup be used to capture the fish rather than a net.

    As one of the more peaceful fish that adds beauty to your aquarium, the Pictus Catfish can be housed with any soft water tank mate. Care should be taken when adding small fish to the aquarium as they may become prey to the Pictus Cat if they are able to fit them in their mouth. Tanks with dim light that are heavily planted are ideal for this fish. Rocks, caves, and driftwood also aid in providing an optimal environment for the Pictus Catfish. In the wild, this fish grows a bit larger than in the aquarium setting, but a minimum of 70 gallons is recommended for proper housing.

    These fish are an egg-laying catfish that are very difficult to breed in an aquarium setting.

    The Pictus Catfish will feed on left over flake food that accumulates at the bottom of the tank. In addition, small live food and sinking catfish pellet food should be provided for complete nutrition.
