Pictus cats are carnivorous, but could still possibly nibble
on your plants. However, Java fern is extremely tough. Many people
use it as the sole plant in big cichlid tanks. Basically, it can be
torn apart, uprooted, etc. and still keep growing. It just may not
look too nice. BTW don't bother trying to raise any small fish with
your pictus, they'll just become a snack.
