We have two Albino Cories in our office tank and they are adorable. They seem to enjoy swimming against the current that the filter makes and have provided hours of enjoyment for the staff. They are so relaxing, and quite funny to watch. They get along with other fish and keep the tank clean. My favorite fish by far.

I have had a spotted raphael for 15 years. I dont know how long they are supposed to live, but I sure love mine! He is fat and happy!

I have two of these guys from very little when they were about couple of inches long. Now after five years one has grown over a foot long but the other is a little short at 8 inches. Don't know why one has grown that much as they were both of the same size to start with. The bigger one is of light gray/blue colour and very lively the smaller one is mostly black in colour.

It's getting a bit difficult to do the water changes now as they almost every time jump out of the tank. The bigger one is quite strong and you can hear him breathe with its gills opening and closing when I pick him up with my hands to put him back in the tank! No he doesn't bite :-)

I have had two spotted talking catfish in my 120 gallon tank for almost a year now. It quickly became obvious to me that they are exclusively nocturnal, so I bought a little moon light fixture which is controlled by a timer and goes on for two hours at midnight every night. I am really glad I invested in the moon light fixture, because as soon as it comes on I can see the talking cats swimming around along the bottom in the dark. I have NEVER seen them in the daytime during which they wedge themselves into narrow crevices in bogwood I have in the tank. It really is a treat to see them being active in the moon light. I think their ballon-like bellies fulfill some function which is yet not understood by experts.

I have 4 types of Pleco and I love them all :) They're great fish, very friendly to the others in my tank, and keep the water really clean. I've had a Pleco that lived to be 13 years old, as well as had one that lived with a turtle, so they're obviously very hardy little guys ;) Feeding wise, they love wood, so if you have one, I suggest giving them some wood to munch on.

I bought my shark at Pet Supermarket, I thought he would be a excellent companion for my aqurium, right now he is a total of 13 inches. He has lots of companions in his tank with him, 2 plecos, 1 bala shark, 6 gourmis, 2 angel fish, 1 tin foil barb, 2 black sharks, 2 silver sharks, 1 tetra pleco (stick bottom feeder) they get along good. He is very interesting to watch, sometimes when he swims through the tank he opens and closes his mouth he looks as though he's talking. He is a wonderful fish and I hope I have him for a long time.

i have a banjo and hes a funny little so and so, he gobbles pellets up whole and loves his bloodworms. i was led to believe they arent very active, perhaps i got the one on caffeine! i rarely see him but when food goes in he readily comes out. im assuming he is male because he is very slender. none of the other fish bother with him. banjo catfishes are a funny fish, a joy to any aquarium in my eyes!

It has been a while since I've had a fishtank up and running. Last tank I had was a 10 gallon. Recently I decided to purchase a new tank now that I have been able to settle down in my own apartment without roomates (finally). Anyways I bought a 20 gallon tank and let it run for about 2 weeks then added 5 neon tetra's and a week and a half later I decided to get a Striped Raphael along with some gourami's. He has now been in my tank for about 3 days. He is very peaceful and so far loves hiding in the darkest spot of the tank. Everyone that has come over to visit has been amazed by his looks. I think it's everyone's favorite fish. I am very pleased on the purchase.
I to hope to watch this fish grow over the years and later on provide him with a larger home.
