We have two of them, the 1st one we got last year was a real baby about 1/2 inch long. About a week later it had a growth spree,it got to be a inch. We then went and got our 2nd one, it too was a baby. we have strange water where we live (we think)because within 2 full months one of them reached 2 1/2inches and the other wasnt too far behind in length. for a bit there, my husband and I thought that the big one was dead several times cause he wouldnt move or anything for several days. We came to learn that was normal for them. we have had these 2 now for a little over a year. the 1 first one is over 5 inches long and during its growth we suspect it was the S.O.B that ate our rosey barbs & cherry barbs, as a means of a late night snack attack! the 2nd one is just chilling on the growth thing for now we think! We have a 50 gal bow front with a wide vareity of fish in it(3 bala sharks, 1 tinfoil barb, 2 cory cats, 1 pictus cat, 1 8"upside down cat (named pete: he is all black, no dots or anything, never seen one like pete before, and we have a pleco, lacydontus, and 2 shubunkins. they all enjoy themselves and get along nicely.

I have 2 sucking loaches, one i have had for 2 weeks and the other 2 monthes. My fish are nocturnal only coming out in the night where they feed on the algae. They love being in the castle and are peaceful to my other fish. But they are not friendly to each other.

I know everything says you cannot keep two males together but, I have 2 males in a 29 gallon tank, and yes they sort of flared at each other for a little bit but, I kept an eye on them because I would have taken one out if they had of gotten mean toward each other. They just lost interest in the flaring up and are best buddies in the tank and they will be side by side and eat and swim together and there are no fights yet. This may not be in all cases but is working for me. I have another in a 15 gallon aquarium that is just too lazy...he just sleeps in the weeds in the top part of the aquarium.

I just recently received a twenty gallon tank as a gift, and I went and bought a few Corys. Both are sweet little fish, only around an inch right now (but hopefully growing!) and are my favorites, although my shark cat has a tendency to nip at them when doing his rounds about the tank. My smaller one (I named her Kissyboots) likes to hide in the rocks, while her friend (named Milkshakes) likes to be right by her side. I simply adore both of them!

We have had our bala shark for 5 years and it is now 11 inches long. He lives in a 135 gallon tank. He dominates this tank which has a few friends like the algae eaters, the tiger barbs, the wide mouth shark which is also 11 inches long. There are also a couple of ciclids and a parrot fish. The bala does get spooked very easily and sometimes hits the ends of the tank back and forth. Once, he even jumped out of the tank. Very entertaining to watch. Glad we have him.
