I have 6 of these great fish. I have been researching sex difference. I see differences in a couple of mine and this is what I have noticed and my thoughts. The 2 have bigger bodys and their pectoral fins are larger and whiter with a flap of skin over top a bit looking like a double fin. They also have a larger anal area. all my silvertips are same age. These 2 I am guessing are females. The rest have normal size fins and just white strip. They don't have the skin flap over them looking like a double fin. Their anal area is not as large. I am guessing the signs are for male and female. I am hoping to breed and looking for info on breeding. I have bred asian needle noses which also no documentation on so I am hoping for miracle again with these sharks.

I've had my little guys for about 5yrs now roughly. They were my beginner fish. Granted, I didn't realize how big they would grow. But, I do love em none the less. They did grow up with a Plecostumus, sadly he died a while back. Now they share a tank with two of them. They have lived threw many trial and errors while trying to make a stable tank at first. They have lived in a 40 gallon tank. I am more than certain they would be happy in a bigger tank, although we don't have the room right now for a bigger tank :(. Some day perhaps.

And they love bubbles. Kind of reminds of that fish in the cartoon *Nemo* "BUBBLES, my bubbles!" .. When they were smaller they use to kinda *dance* in the bubble strips. Not so much now, though they still play in them sometimes. One is bigger than the other, at least 1/2 it's size. He's the one that freaks out the most. They have become more than just fish to me, it'll be a sad day when they go to that fish heaven. Hopefully that won't be for a long time still. :)

I've had mine for over a year now and it has eaten probably $100 in other fish. It ate the corys. It ate the barbs. It ate the Gouramis. That little bugger even ate the pleco, not to mention numerous ottos. If it fits in its mouth it will disappear.

Our pair of bristle noses have just had a batch of eggs hatch, and they've already laid another batch. These little fellas are way cool.

I got my striped raphael about 8 months ago. I had read a little bit about them before i choose to add one to my tank. The night i put him in the tank he was about 1.5" and swam straight to the bottom and hid in the plants. The next day when i went to feed the tank there was no sight of him. Days went by, no sight. after about 2 weeks i still hadnt seen him, so i thought he had died and was eaten (i have a 6.5" pangasius cat as well). So after 3 months i decided to move around some of the decor in the tank and he came swimming out of a small hollow ship hull that i have. I was stunned!!! that SOB was still alive and about 3" long now. No sight of him for over 3 months!! I only see him once in a while and only when the lights are out, but now i know where to look for him to check on 'em.

i don't understand what so hard about raising irredescent shark catfish. i bought 3 of them they schooled well. they eat high quality goldfish flakes. including eating from my hand in the water and have been known to rub up against my hand in the water. not for tasting me, but for texture,lol.yes they bump the tank alot when younger and make mad dashes all over splashing water. they live in a freshwater tank ,not brackish.i assume they can. they love having a current and swim the middle of the tank. they have a lil white dot on there forheads ,i assume thats a light sensitive third eye like crayfish.. ive never been stung cleaning my tank, or bit by the way i have to mention i have a 40 gallon tank and each one happens to be around 9 to 10 inches long they seem pretty happy.
