Exclamation am i the only owner of a gulper catfish

if you dont have one you will want one they are like pet whales/dogs

He just wont eat he wont eat goldfish thats nasty anyway

I am not sure if he is eating stuf that falls to the bottom of tank but if he is that cant be good for him he can get constipated fast

Are they not "aggressive" and gluttonous feeders?
Is there something stopping it from feeding? Is the fish active and healthy otherwise?

This usually happens when they've been living in water that doesn't fit their needs

You should post the parameters of the water
