This is probably the best fish I will ever have. It is healthy, nice looking, and it keeps my tank clean. I had a house for it that I took out, because if for some reason if there was a freak accident and he died, I wouldnt be able to see him. I've had him for about 2 years now, and he is about 5 inches long. Greatest fish, and his name is Raoul...lol

I bought a raphael catfish for 3.49 and it is probably the best catfish I think I will ever have. It outeats any other pleco I've ever had when it comes to the algae, but then at times it just doesn't eat for a few days, then I'll see him skirming around. Great fish, had him for two years, bought him at 3/4'' and now hes about 5 inches. great fishie!

The easiest to take care of fish that you will probably ever have. I recommend them for any size aquarium, and if you have a 20 long or higher i believe that you should get at least three. The greatest things as they keep your tank clean, and cichlids hardly mess with them (except for my tiger oscar).

As a testament to how hardy the kissing gourani's are we moved ours cross country from Virginia to California in a 2 gallon tank that we set up every other night with a air stone and he's doing really well!

I have 3 firemouths that were in a 29 gallon, but now they're in a ten gallon, and they're going to be in a 55 for the rest of their life in a few days. They are a little more aggressive than people say they are against small fish, but they get along great with my dwarf cichlids. Im separating the silver dollar from them because of their aggressive tendencies, but i must say, they are funny when they coast back and forth with their gill plates and team up with other fish to "rule the world"

I have a ten gallon tank with five jack dempseys. There are two that are big and black and three that are light brown. When I first got my dempseys, I asked the pet store what can go in the tank with them. She told me oscars, so I bought two. I put them both in the tank. My dempseys started swiming around them and I went back to the couch to watch t.v. After awhile I went over to feed them and one was dead. In the morning the other was dead. I told my boyfiend that we really got some mean fish as they did not give the other fish time to swim around the tank. We have had our dempseys for three months and I love them so much. I will be getting a 30 gallon tank so they can have more room to swim around in. My boyfriend will lay in front of the tank and watch them for hours. Right now I don't which ones are male or female, but soon I will know.

I have a 75 gal tank with a gold gourami, 12 tetras, couple of bottom feeders and one large angel. I added a blue gourami and all was fine until the blue gourami out grew the gold gourami. It is now a marathon around the tank with the blue gourami chasing the gold. I am going to have to remove the blue guy as he has become much too disruptive.

We have had good luck with these fish. We have so many babys we had to get another tank. We have a 20 gallon and just purchased a 40 gallon. We put three in the new tank and have already started getting new ones. They seem to breed like guppys. We have had over 100 babys that have grown up. With these 2 types of tanks you cant go wrong

I'm not sure who the actual breeder is, but I know that the red tailed catfish has recently been bred in captivity. They are a little more expensive because they are so hard to breed. I picked up my red tail for thirty dollars as a 3 inch juvenile. The ones that are bred in captivity are 40 dollars. My catfish is now about 18 inches and is kept in a 300 gallon tank. i am planning on setting up a 500 gallon tank for him soon. I keep him with 6 oscars, one of them is an albino fan-tail and one is a blueberry oscar(its blue)
