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.

With more than 40 million men and women online looking for love, there are bound to be some scam artists out there. A “catfish” is a person who creates a false online identity in the hopes of luring people into romantic relationships. Nev Schulman starred in the 2010 documentary, Catfish, about being drawn in by a woman online claiming to be someone she wasn’t.
Have you ever been CATFISHED? Or better yet, have YOU ever CATFISHED someone? Shame on you if you have.... It's bad enought to play with someone's emontion in person but what kind of state must someone be in to be taken advantage of by someone online that they have not even met in person.

Aquaculture Students Present…Aquaculture
Students are involved in growing tilapia, catfish, Koi, goldfish, and rainbow trout. They are responsible for feeding the fish, flushing filters, and testing water quality. In the spring, students spawn goldfish and Koi. Each year the tilapia fingerlings are collected to replenish our quantity. The tilapia are cooked at the yearly fish fry.
The fish waste from the filters is used as fertilizer on our garden next to the fishery. Students raise plants in hydroponic beds inside and outside the fishery.
Take a tour of the fishery by clicking here.
We are very proud of our aquaculture program. It is one of the few programs of this caliber in the state.Project Coordinator: Jeannie Ward Community Chapter Volunteer: Teresa Jackson
