Last week Stripey here lost his friend Panda through a fin injury (attacked by another fish). :< We thought it would get lonely as the only small catfish, but the two large albino catfish, longtime residents of the tank, have been awesome team players. They naturally welcomed Stripey into their group.
These South American catfish are very peaceful and good community tank members. Although they don’t school like neon tetra fish, they tend to hang closely around each other, which is their protective mechanism.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!
So cute. Love when you see things like this happen. :))
Same here! When we first got fish, I didn’t expect much except for them eating and swimming around. But they are full of personality and have interesting group dynamics.
That’s sweet – good study on how all creatures interact with one another, no matter the size or species.
