    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

    Cool catfish by the way. Fish sometimes do some silly things and thats what keeps us all in the hobby lol
