Jebus, try feeding yours with cut market prawn instead of live worms.
i brought mine to hostel, so now i feed it with hikari sinking gf pellets only. but growth so far is good, when u pass it over to me
it was ard 55mm now 65mm. 10mm in 6 days!
coloration also darkened

will try to feed it pure pellets so eventually when it is bigger can take massivore. so that when i leave it at home my siblings can feed it with pellets.

Default day 7 update:D



notice if u compare with day 2 and day 7, the ending of the tail got a darkening marking on it

+ it is 10mm longer feeding on hikari sinking gf pellets
currently standing at 65+mm

i've also noticed something quite amusing but can't capture on my hp cam
is that they have little black spikes on top of their body.
i believe theses are sensory receptors as mine seem to immediately react to pellets that fall onto of it, while ignoring pellets that are just infront of him.

maybe my fry's sense of smell not well developed yet.

i thought so too when my pacman took in 5 sinking pellets at one go, i saw the stomach quite fat alrdy and i knew he can take a few more, but just dint wanna take the risk.
but i wanna make it take pellets as a staple diet though as it has more or less consistent quality, always hear that ppl feed MP then duno why die.
scary thought.

somemore pacman catfish hard to come by in singapore

Yes Ben, unfortunately I mean Tatia perugiae!! from observation, they are also quite aggressive towards each other! one of them has achieved a slight size advantage and is bossing himself around. Just rescape a 3 footer for them will upload pixs later.
