What catfish are best with koi fish?
I would use Tandannus tandannus (Eal tailed catfish)
It depends on the species of catfish. Koi are cold-water fish, and most catfish prefer temperate to tropical temperature. North American catfish species would be a decent choice to keep with koi, however the aquarium would need to be extremely large due to the potential size of the catfish, and some catfish.
No, unless you want the catfish to eat all your koi/goldfish--catfish grow fast and they will eat anything, including your other fish. I have Blue Channel Catfish from about 1 inch two years ago, now 14 inches mixed in with both large and baby Koi. The Catfish eats the Koi food and interacts with them like nothing. I have never lost a fish. I think the key is getting a catfish when they are young…
Well so far my 11" koi and my 3" koi are doing great with my two 4 1/2" upside down catfish... I also had yellow zebra that did well but unfortunately ran into bad luck when they where swallowed whole by the catfish, I say swallowed because no trace of all four were ever found.

Bumble bee catfish and some koi some guppies some minnows and some goldfish you want another catfish and you want a wild one is it safe if not what should you buy?
If you are keeping these fish together then you shouldn't be - they are not compatible. Some of these are tropical, some cold water and there are big size differences. The Bumblebee catfish are noticeably smaller than all of the other fish that you have mentioned and if you are going to put in a wild caught catfish then those guppies and catfish... and maybe the goldfish are going to disappear VERY quickly. You CANNOT…
My koi pond is black, with stone sides. . .to me this makes the fish very visible I would google image "koi pond" to get a better idea. At koi shows they are displayed in blue tubs. Web sites that have koi for sale show all their koi on blue backgrounds. Some koi have black in them and some are completely black. With a black background the black fish disappears.

Thousands of species of fish eat algae. Catfish Catfish are one of the most well-known and appreciated algae eaters in ponds, rivers, and tributaries throughout many regions. The catfish comes in a variety of species. The most identifiable characteristic is the long whisker-like tendrils that extend from its front facial area. The catfish is an efficient algae eater and tends to avoid other fish. Occasionally, however, this species may tend to be a bit aggressive…
It depends on the variety of catfish. Catfish vary in weight and size and some are poisonous. Some varieties of catfish will attack smaller fish, so selection for compatability is essential. ___________________________________________________________ Fish that will neither inflict harm on small catfish nor fit into the mouth of a bigger catfish. Catfish will consume anything that fits into their mouth and the majority of catfish have large mouths.
