You must have just gotten it, right? It looks like it could use much TLC.

Tender loving care.

Wow! 27 years is a pretty long time congratulations! It is encouraging to know that they can live so long with proper care. Very encouraging to some of us starting over.

I bought 2 catfishes when I moved into my first apartment. The larger fish died about 21 years old after a complete water change. The smaller is about 26 years old now.
