Plecos are very hardy fish, but are are subject to the same diseases as other tropical fish. Disease is not usually a problem in a well maintained aquarium and these catfish are very resilient. One of the most common freshwater fish ailments is ich.All medications should be used with caution. Because they are a scaleless fish, catfish can be treated with pimafix or melafix but should not be treated with potassium permanganate or copper based medications. Malachite green or formalin can be used at one half to one fourth the recommended dosage. Take care when treating disease as catfish are extremely sensitive to medications.The best way to proactively prevent disease is to give your fish the proper environment and give them a well balanced diet. The closer to their natural habitat the less stress the fish will have, making them healthier and happy. A stressed fish will is more likely to acquire disease.

The Red-Tailed Catfish are very hardy but are subject to the same diseases as other tropical fish. Disease is not usually a problem in a well maintained aquarium and these catfish are very resilient. High nitrate levels can cause catfish to develop infected barbels; which makes it difficult for them to navigate and eat normally. Maintain nitrate levels below 20 ppm through regular water changes.

Tropical Fish for Freshwater Aquariums: Otocinclus Catfish
The present study focuses on the establishment of methods for biomarker studies in freshwater and marine fish species as a basis for monitoring the extent of contamination of fisheries resources in tropical waters. Riverine catfish (Rita rita) and marine mudfish (Apocryptes bato) were given a single intraperitoneal injection with two selected inducing compounds; β-naphthoflavone (BNF, 50 mg/kg) and a polychlorinated biphenyl mixture (Clophen A50, 20 mg/kg), and the heavy metal compound cadmium chloride (CdCl2, 1 mg/kg). Effects on cytochrome P4501A (CYP1A) were determined in post-mitochondrial supernatants (PMS) of liver at days 3 and 10 after treatment. EROD (7-ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase) activity and CYP1A protein level by indirect non-competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and Western blotting using a monoclonal antibody against fish CYP1A, were measured. BNF and Clophen A50 resulted in induction upto 9.5- and 5-fold, respectively, of CYP1A protein compared to control, while CdCl2 showed significant inhibition in these species. The present study examined the phase-I cytochrome P450 monooxygenase activity and response in these two tropical fish species for the first time.Some catfish are omnivorous and occasionally prey on other fish in the aquarium. They're best kept in larger aquariums or with large tropical fish. These include sea, naked, air-breathing, pangasius and long-whiskered catfish. They may be kept with other fish as long as there is plenty of room and hiding places for fish such as rocks and plants.Freshwater catfish are found on every continent except Antarctica, and are generally hardy, easygoing fish. As aquarium pets, they offer an added bonus of scavenging, eating bits of food that have fallen to the bottom of the tank. Most are peaceful fish who get along well with other species of tropical fish, but there are some exceptions. It's important to understand each type of catfish when choosing one to complete your aquarium habitat so that it can coexist peacefully with existing community members. After several years of keeping tropical fish, I began to feel that I understood reasonably well what fish could live together successfully. At least I no longer purchase small neon tetras to live with my adult . Recently I’ve taken a great interest in catfish of all kinds. Quite frankly, I feel like a beginning aquarist all over again. If the catfish get along with my other tropical fish, they don’t get along with each other and vice versa. How can I tell what fish are going to be compatible? The method I’m currently using of course, missing fish or dead (sometimes near dead) catfish, is clearly not satisfactory. Help!
