At my local petsmart I was getting some loaches and in the next tank was a label that said Bumblebee Catfish. I only saw one in the tank and it was tiny, maybe 1in. long! It looked black with a thick brown stripe in the middle of its body. It definetly looked like a catfish. Its tag said it only gets 3in. long! any one know how to care for something like this??

OK I researched a little and I think its name is Microglanis iheringi

I have a bumblebee catfish in a 30g tank with tiger barbs, T-barbs and a needlefish. I never see him, and my girlfriend commented that she didn't even know he was there until we moved and we were catching all the fish.

He was going to go into a community tank, but while he was bagged when I was buying him he kept trying to eat the otocinclus he was with, so in he went with the semi-aggressive fish and he's been doing just fine.
