Hi glad to be back on the forum. I have 2 new members of my community tank. The are Syn Petricola. I found them at the GCCA meet. What a cool catfish. I have them with small1-1 1/2angels and Strawberry Danios. I read up on them and believe these are a good fit for the tank. I would like to know if what I am feeding them will be good for them. Some sinking pellets, freeze dried brine shrimp - tubleflex worms - daphnia as well quality flake. They stay on the bottom[naturally] Should I feed them after the light is off? I have BNP that I feed sinking pellets. Is that good for them Petricolas? Thanks so much. Jeff

Welcome back! I think you are fine with the "menu" you offer your fish. I never fed my bottom dwellers at night, and never experienced any problems with them. In fact, I've had some breed.

Thanks for the reply. I feed my Bristle nose plecos at night. But they will feed when ever I feed the other fish in the tank. Thanks for the tip.
