I am currently have a baby pleco in a 5 gallon tank. I plan to have a bigger tank when it grows up..However I am having trouble specing it I have noticed that it has a shield infront of its eye and 2 fins on the side it is tan with black spots. its very cool. I hope to find out what species it is soon.

I have a redtail catfish in a tank with a snakehead. They are both pretty good predators. I started out with about 25 south american cichlids (oscars, dempseys, convicts, arrowana) of varied species in a 120 gallon tank fish tank along with the redtail and snakehead. Now there is two! May the best man win! They have co-habitated for some time now and appear to be great tankmates.

Very attractive looking fish, although I lost one to ICK, The other survived when I treated him in a smaller 10 gallon tank with ICK Clear. I bought another to keep him company, but lately they have been chasing each other around and obviously nipping at each others fins. I guess they are somewhat territorial with their own species. They get along great with my other fish. I have a Bala Shark, Pictus catfish, black fin shark, rainbow shark, Common Pleco, and a Siameese Tiger Fish. The Black Fin is a little aggresive though. My two silver tips are always available to watch, as they never hide.

I had mollies before my iridescents. I have only had them a couple of weeks and I can already notice a HUGE difference in feeding traits! They are the kind of aquarium fish you can sit and watch all day. I was slightly disappointed when I found out they are not generally a breeding fish. I would love to breed and sell them like I did my mollies. But they are good fish for pets, too.

We bought our Pangasius from PetSmart too. The information there says it grows to 8". It is now 16" and still growing! The description on this site is very accurate. I will say, Pangasius can be very sweet when they get used to you. Ours is in a 50 gallon tank with five Cichlids and a Plecostamus. We need to go to a bigger tank now because the Pangasius is banging around and needs more room. Oh, it makes a mess when it has to go. Its really increased our need for tank cleanings!

my husband and i have a red tailed catfish named red. this is our third one. he is about 10 inches. red is a wonderful fish except for the fact that he has ate 4 arowanas,1 leaf fish, and 6 tinfoil bards that were about hand size. out of all three we have had, this one means the most to us. This is because we saved him from our amazon catfish which had him in his mouth up to his pectoral fins by the time i saw him. my husband got the catfish to spit him out and he is still thriving today. we keep him in a 180 gallon tank. we plan to build a pond in our back yard for him pretty soon.

I have 4 of these unusal guys & they are a constant source of amusement from trying to find them in the sand to watching them after lights out. I got them whilst looking for tankmates for my Green Spotted Puffer. I wanted a fish that would clean up the puffers leftovers but would not cause a problem as puffers are notoriously agressive, the answer was certainly Banjo catfish!
