    So I've had hoplo catfish for quite a long time now and ive never seen this before. I've just finished a water change and my hoplo catfish completely buried itself under my gravel? And after a couple of minutes it reappeared. Is this normal?

    I don't have an answer, but I'd just like to say he's a really cool looking catfish. :)

    Loaches bury themselves all the time. But I haven't seen catfish do it before. My fish do some funny things after I do a water change, almost like a thank you lol. One time all of my cherry barbs chased eachother in a circle! Like a little dance lol

    My father had a catfish of sorts (possibly a banjo? Or similar, long/skinny) that would bury. Bottomfeeders do this depending on the fish. I would say normal!

    I have one with my angels. THE ARMOURED CATFISH. I love him, so cool yours buried himself like that. Probably trying to get something he smelled.

    Yeah maybe, he didn't stay there for too long haha. I love all types of catfish and bottom feeders, definitely the best area of the tank
    The plants are fake by the way
