Microglanis Iheringi

I have a 20 gallon planted tank with a microglanis iheringI male, about 0.75" long. I'm a bit unsure about what to feed him because I barely see him and I haven't seen him/her in a few days. How should I feed him? He never comes out, even if I drop bloodworms or pellets in my tank, and at a small size, I'm not sure what to do. I have a male betta, a honey dwarf gourami, and 2 male guppies in there, if it helps.

Hello there.

Your catfish is a secretive species. Some people have even reported months without seeing it! You may not see it that often which is why they are not considered for everyone. However they still have a certain charm in their secretive nature. Try to feed when the lights are off. Use a turkey baster to get food to the bottom. Your catfish may not eat the first few times but eventually it will, it just needs to get comfortable in its new environment. Bloodworms, live blackworms, microworms, and brine shrimp are good choices. Brine shrimp is usually a favorite of them.
