Pictus Cats are a community fish and are very peaceful towards other fish species as long as they are not too small in size, like small neon tetras or similar. Pictus Cats are active at nightime, scavenging for food on the substrate. Ideally you would offer a heavily planted aquarium, with some natural caves formed from driftwood or rocks. They prefer to stay in groups, so it is sugested to stock larger numbers for best result. Pictus Cats are not picky eaters, so offer them a variety of flakes, pellets, wafers and bloodworms.
