Are goldfish and catfish compatible?

Yes they are!

This is because goldfish and catfish eat different food stuffs and have different behaviors/ habits.

Catfish like to hide out around/ under objects and mostly eat food from the bottom of your fishtank. Catfish eat the algae in your tank and will need supplementary food [expensive] before it is all gone not just because of starvation but because they also need other minerals and proteins.

Goldfish are passive creatures and will not harm the catfish. Gold fish often come up to where you feed them, which is usually right at the very top waterline.

Try a similar sized catfish or two [like a bristlenose] to your goldfish and don't put more fish in than the number that will fit end to end over your tanks long side.

What was the name of the catfish in 'Grumpy Old Men'?

Catfish Hunter.

The name was most likely derived from the nickname of a famous baseball pitcher who was one of only 17 players (at the time the movie was made) to pitch a perfect game (May 8, 1968, against the Minnesota Twins). Hunter played for the Kansas City/Oakland Athletics from 1965-1974, then for the Yankees from 1975-1979. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1987.

What makes good catfish bait?

The best bait is chicken liver but in Florida you need minnows.

The catfish has a good sense of smell. The baits that are the most effective are called "stinkbaits" because they give off a strong scent. Typically, mackerel is used as a cut bait because the fish gives off oils. Man-made baits often include bloods of various types, garlic and some flour to bind the combination together.

I recently discovered that in the rivers around N E Ohio catfish LOVE hotdogs.

I use chicken liver but i have used a bettle spin and have suprisingy caught 2 on them. One of the best bait is at Walmart is lil stinker or chicken blood and liver

What do catfish eat?

Catfish eat small fish, water snakes, worms, water plants, and anything that looks good. They are bottom feeders. Their whiskers are really feelers, to help them determine what is food and what isn't. On the bottom of a lake it can be very murky and hard to see, so the feelers assist in finding anything moving along the bottom, such as worms, lizards, frogs, but all things like, fish eggs, and other aquatic animals that are dead. All these are eaten by catfish, some are known as Mud Cats and others as Channel Cats. I'm sure there are lots of other nicknames but these are the only ones I know. They serve a very important place in keeping the waterways clean, and at the same time they are fun to catch and just as much fun to eat.
mostley all catfish besides mekong catfish will eat any kind of dead fish or chicken livers and smelly stuff. mostley i recommend dead bream or bluegill or sunfish you can also buy premade catfish bait from the store witch works too. but i rercomend the fishbecause onece i caught a 18.6 lb blue catfish on my first cast using about 1 square in. of dead bluegill.

Are catfish poisonous?

Some are. But many will only cause injury with their hollow barbed fins, which can deliver a stinging protein. But some species, such as the striped eel catfish, can deliver a toxic mucus that may be fatal to humans. The edible portions of catfish do not contain any toxins.

A recent study suggests that about half of the 3000 known species of catfish are poisonous. Only a few species are poisonous enough to hurt humans (none in North America). The rest cause about the same amount of discomfort as bee stings. National Geographic also states that as the catfish grow, the venom glands shrink, indicating the venom glands are meant for defense while the fish is young.

The venom comes from glands near the pectoral fins. When the fins are grabbed the glands are ripped, releasing the venom.

The majority of catfish species have poisonous barbs located within their dorsal (top) and lateral (side) fins. If stuck with one of these, they can inject a toxin which causes a painful sting which usually resolves on its own after time. However, like any wound, it can get infected and it is advisable to clean and treat it. Only a select few of catfish species (located in areas of Southern Asia and India) have stings which could cause serious complications, or very rarely, death.

The catfish toxin is protein-based (like bee stings) and thus is treatable with meat tenderizer. Ammonia and vinegar will not be very effective, as they are alkali (base) treatments, to be used for acid-based toxins.

Are catfish whiskers poison?

I do not know of any catfish species that have poisonous whiskers. The whiskers are for feeling and tasting stuff on the bottom of the lake, pond or ocean. However, most catfish do have spines on dorsal (top) and side fins. It is possible to hold a catfish without getting stabbed by one of these sharp fins. If a catfish does happen to fin you and break skin, make sure you wash the wound thoroughly, especially if the catfish was a freshwater variety. If it is a saltwater catfish and you get finned by one, though it may hurt, wash your wound with ocean water.

If the wound from a fin is deep, go to the ER and have them take a look to make sure the catfish did not injure any important parts of your body.
