Raph Cats: Dangerous to Large Cichlids?

1445 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  TheFishGuy

So I ordered a raph cat to scrounge aorund the bottom and grab lost food. I've seen a couple posts recently mentioning that these fish can be dangerous to larger cichlids. In particular I know some had mentioned the fear that their Oscars would spine themselves in the gills.

I'm wondering if I should worry about this with my dempsey. I tend to think the dempsey, being smaller, would not attempt to swallow a raph, but I'm not sure.

Any experience or advice. TheFishGuy, I think you weighed in on this issue in some other threads. I would really appreciate your input.
