    I have a baby tig. New to the tank with 3 pictus catfish. The tig and pictus are the same size length wise. The pictus have more size thou. Will they get along or should the pictus go?

    I'm sure the tig will be fine if it can't easily fit in the pictus' mouths. You talking about a tigrinus or a TSN, btw? Tigrinuses can be real fragile as babies.

    tigs are rubbish hunters so the pics will eat all the food

    and the tig will grow very fast 1-1.5inch per month up to 12inch then slow down a bit so the pics will be food in a few months
