i watched it like five times and missed the goldfish and the catfish and suckerfish you mentioned every time Sareena, lol.
Im not sure if I got them in the video I was mostly trying to find out the name of the orange ones which apparently are "blood parrots"

ALSO there werent any regualr goldfish in there, it was a cruddy video so Im sure it was hard to tell....

as far as the "catfish" and sucker go, here are some pix I found online that look pretty darn close to what I saw (the sucker was a little more spikey than the one in the pic )

yeah the grass threw me off a bit, it looked sharp and kinda dangerous, I just liked how the tank was built into the wall, and it had interesting (but too many) fish. oh well gave me something to take my friends mind of the dentist lol

I agree, I always like looking at display tanks in places like this. The Jungle Jim's restaraunt downtown has a large oscar tank and the oscars watch you eat your food! lol Creepy but fun.

This tank would be improved by removing the pointy stalk grass stuff. Nice coils of silk leaves are available in all dollar and craft stores for way cheaper and are much nicer lol

heck my betta watches me eat, little piggie :)....we had an oscar growing up, of course we didnt know how big they got and eventually had to rehome him but he was fun while it lasted. he liked to jump for his food, except one one time he jumped out and landed on the floor and scared the crud out of my mom so we had to be really careful when we opened the lid from there on out...

The sucker catfish you describe is a bristlenose pleco. They stay much smaller than the common plecos and can easily be housed in a 10 or 20 gal tank. What you probably saw was an albino form.

The catfish you pictured is not a catfish at all. That is a red-tailed shark. They are a very aggressive species and not suited for the general community.

yeah it seems like they had an odd combo of fish in that tank (as well as way too many)...interesting to watch though...

In all honesty it would not surpreise me if the tank only got monthly water changes and is overstocked.
