Also would they be likely to attack doradid catfish that are larger then themselves?

Eventually they will try to eat anything they are kept with. They will even kill themselves trying. I have seen pseudopims try to take fish twice their own size and then choke to death on their own prey.

Thanks for the information. Are all pseudopims this prone to trying to eat tankmates?

I remember Lee Finley telling me, many years ago, a story about a four inch Pseudopimelodus that ate an eight inch Farlowella. The pseudopim spent several days digesting a bit, swallowing more, digesting a bit, swallowing more, etc until the Farlowella was all gone.
