I eventually had to net the lil guy, he was having a tough time it looked like breathing, so i slowly pulled it outta his mouth. he's a fat lil bastard, as you can sorta see

I guess ill have to start chopping up the worms b4 feeding, it is amusing though to watch him and the exos attacking a worm 3X their size.

That is a big worm. I thought Rafael catfishes were scavengers and snail eatters...

They are carnivourous and will eat anything they can get their mouth onto...

Sweet cat, and cool pics, Gio
Hungry little critter isn't he

I have one as well (I think, haven't seen him in a while, and he was quite active, so perhaps my reds tagged him), and I really like him. Great coloration, cool looking whiskers...
Try looking for a spotted one as well: those are also very cool!

Here's one of mine (and he's a fat little bastard as well)

My striped raphael:

I haven't tried worms yet, but I'm a bit affraid urban worms are full of toxins and other harmful shiz....

Sweet pics Jonas, mine barely ever comes out from this piece of lava rock I have in the tank, there's a whole in the middle of it that he has made it his home, but I did just throw in some gold pellets and he came out and vacuumed them off the top
i saw the spotted ones, they were right beside the striped ones at the LFS i bought him at, maybe ill buy one of those next time im up there and throw him in my piranha tank, as the 10 gallon is probaly 2 crowded as it is

WEll, I had to drop in a shizload of pellets before they finally came out to be photographed...
They're for sure not the most sociable of fish
