Nicky_aitken created the topic: Bristlnose catfish babies in oscar tank

I just noticed this afternoon that my oscar was chasing something around his tank, I had a better look and noticed that He was chasing a baby bristlenose catfish (as I have a breeding pair in the tank with him) I can't find where the eggs have been payed or if there are anymore babies but my male bristlenose seams to be hiding somewhere as I haven't seen him in ages I'm just wondering what I do now... Do I search the whole tank to find either the eggs or the babies, do I need to remove them from the tank with my oscar in it I just don't want to stress my oscar out in the process, please help :(

Keeping a breeding pair of catfish in with your oscar is a bad idea, because oscars are notorious for eating anything that fits into their mouths. If you want the baby/babies to survive you need to separate them from the oscar asap.
