Re: Shrimp question

Just wanted to add that I could observe the whole neon was apparently bulging 
out the belly of the catfish the following day. (sort of like the silhouette) 
It can swallow them whole, and their mouth is a whole lot bigger than it 
would appear.

<< In my experience, gouramis don't move fast enough to hunt successfully, 
 do they have the inclination to do so. I've never seen plecos look for food 
 in the water, only on surfaces (due to the sucker mouth). My guess would be 
 the upside down catfish. If this is related to the humbug (does it have 
 long whiskers?) I believe they are hunters. I had one at one time. My neons 
 would disappear overnight. To be fair to the guy, I know at least 2 
 where he possibly only scavenged a dead body (ailing fish were observed 
 before lights out). There was 1 time that was questionable. I then adopted 
 him out.
