I have three of these in a 30g tank along with a dozen other various tetras, 2 emerald catfish (Brochis splendens - my favorite) and a lone male betta. One of the three chased the betta and nipped his
fins mercilessly for the first week but has since calmed down.

I have a six inch pleco in a twenty gallon and he is a very good cleaner and he likes all the other fish in my other tanks.
I have 23 other fish.

I own a Leporinus fasciatus and he is not aggressive in the least other than if he gets cornered and then he usually just dips his head and shakes his body.

Lovely, efficient fish, but beware. They are smart little devils and will climb. I had about five square inches of open space, a gap in the hood for my filter. Low and behold, the little sucker managed to climb out of the tank and on to the floor. Also, this fish can be territorial, and if in the right mind will have its way. My second, the fish that preceded the little worm who climbed his way to my living room carpet, had a huge territory problem, he would suck the scales off fish who entered it. I gave him a rock cave to please him, but then he stopped EaTiNg, heaven knows why.

I have 2 albino tinfoil barbs 6 1/2 inches in length and 2 normal tinfoil barbs 8 1/2 inches in length. they live in a 300 gallon with a 5 inch pleco. also theres bout 1000,0000,0000 zebra danios which they feed on, its so cool to watch them gobble up these little speed demons. Ive had my barbs for about 7 months now and are the most awesome fish i have ever owned the tank is filled with many aquatic plants and black gravel which really make the tinfoil barbs stand out well. i sugest these fish to anyone that has the time,patience and of coarse a big enough tank for these whales :)

I own two Bi-colour Banjo catfishes and therefore have read quit a few articles on them. We all know that the difference between the sexes in most catfishes is hard to make out. From what I have found with my Banjos and the articles I read is that the female has a visibly rounder body shape where as the male is very flat.

I have two plecos right now, they grow steadily, so be prepared to upgrade your tank every few years. I have only encountered one very aggressive pleco, most of mine have been very docile and hardy. They live in excess of 6 years, more like 12, so I would suggest this fish to anyone who plans to keep an aquarium for a long time. They do eat plants, so use artificial plants instead of real ones, and bury the plant base in the gravel as a large pleco can easily rearrange a tank (i.e. send plants flying) with one swish of its tail.
