I have 5 of these fish. I adore them as they are wonderful to watch, however they are gluttons. they are extremely lively and very very territorial and they do not get along with other fish well at all. In 2 months they have consumed 1 Angel fish, 1 Gourami, 1 upside down catfish and yesterday I caught one with the tail of a sucking catfish hanging out of its mouth. So peaceful stikes me as amusing, I would not recommend them for community tanks at all. I feed them well twice daily.

It is 26 January 2005. I purchased two lace catfish in April 2004. They were about 1.5 inches from tip of head to tip of tail when I purchased them. they are now about 4.0 inches now! They are fed various food; wafers, flake, chiclids pellets, live earthworms, chicken, etc. They seem to be nocturnal; I do not see them often during the day. They prefer to stay under the driftwood or in the lace rock caves. They are very strong and fast swimmers. I had them in a 46 gallon tank with Cichlids and botia until last night. I moved them to a 40 gallon tank with Angle fish, neon tetras and cory cats. My cichlids had babies and I am afraid that they might be eaten.

We have kept Phantoms many times. They are easy going interesting fish. almost playfull. Our small 9 gallon tank has been fine for them until recently. We added 6 tiger barbs and 2 weeks later 6 neon tetras making 21 fish including the 6 phantoms (we refresh 2 gallons of RO water every week). The Phantoms have now become rather shy hidding at the back behind some wood and grass.

Hi i have 15 tinfoils for about 4 years. Its really cool to see them in my 95 gallon tank. They enjoy chopped liver,which isnt expensive at all. None of my tinfoils have ever died.I recommend that people should get these fish. They arent hard to take care of.

I have one in my tropical. I have only had it for a few weeks but already it has kept my rainbow shark in line. I originally had two but one died not long after getting introduced. The one fish is managing fine to keep a 92 L tank clean but getting fat.

Have had Dorothy for 3 years and presume she is getting close to her full growth. Sure hope so as she is now on her second aquarium and will go into a 5 gallon tank soon. She ? acts like all the ones written about and does give me a chuckle. Her aquarium sits next to my stove on the counter, so she is the first thing I get to interact with in the a.m. with coffee.
