Cetopsis coecutiens Log

Hey everyone,
I figured I would start a bit of a log of my group of Cetopsis coecutiens and share any experiences with them as there is not a whole of info on them. I wanted to give back so to speak as I spent the last 8 years tracking them down and researching them with the use of other hobbyists experiences.
Currently they are growing out in a 135G, the only tank mate is a common pleco that seems to be fairing OK. I'm feeding the group of 12 diced/blended cocktail shrimp, earth worms, frozen blood worms and mysis shrimp. I have tried sinking shrimp pellets and I was surprised that they did take to them as well. But regardless of being wild caught, I still think it's true predatory catfish fashion to pretty much eat anything that hits the water.
Here are a few short videos of the new additions to the fish room.

The group is still doing great. I plan on starting them on some home made food, a blend of tilapia fillet and beef heart. However before blending it all up I thought I'd drop in a chunk of tilapia and see how they liked it...........just watch the video in the link below to see. Needless to say they enjoyed it.
