I have had my pleco for about 3-4 months and he is great. he eats all the alge and left over food. I have him in with my 2 Blue gouramis, 2 Dwarf gouramis, 1 Gold gourami, and 1 Blue danio and he does fine. The only real problem I have with him is that he re-arranges the tank the way he wants, no matter how many times I fix it. Besides the fact they are awsome fish to keep.

I have two plecos in my 55 gallon aquarium. They are very entertaining and cool to watch. They are a very good aquarium cleaner because they suck the algae right off your aquarium. I highly recomand this aquarium cleaner to anyone who has lots of algae in their aquarium.

I RECENTLY BOUGHT A 18 INCH RED TAILED CATFISH. ALONG WITH MY 2 FT TIGER SHOVELNOSED CATFISH THEY HAVE DEVOURED ALL SMALLER FISH, TO INCLUDE 2 LIMA SHOVELNOSE AND 2 SMALLER TIGERS ALONG WITH THOUSANDS OF MINNOWS. OVERALL IF YOU HAVE THE TANK SIZE THEY ARE A GREAT FISH TO HAVE. IDEAL TANK MATES ARE OSCARS PACUS AND OTHER CICHLIDS THAT CANT DISAPPEAR INTO ITS BOTTOMLESS PIT. I HAVE SEVERAL OSCARS A PIKE AND 2 PACUS AND 2 MAGUANESE AND 1 RED DEIVL IN A 220 ALONG WITH THE 2 CATFISH

My Agamyxis is now 17 years old and has survived 2 Long distance House moves, a move to a different tank and numerous tank mates and is still going strong. He/she looks great too.

I bought my Striped Raphael when he was only about 1-1/2 inches long. I have now had this fish for 12 years. He is now 8-1/2 inches long, not counting his whiskers. He is extremely inactive, except at feeding time. His favorite food is the Hikari Tropical Sinking Wafers. He cannot wait for them to sink, though. He comes to the top of the tank and catches them on the way down. He will even take them from my fingers. His eating habits are often very irregular. Sometimes he will go for two weeks without eating anything, but occasionally he will eat 8 wafers in one evening. He also sleeps in very strange positions. More than once I have thought he was dead because he would be floating upside down and motionless under something in the tank. Lately, he sleeps standing on his tail between the heater and the corner of the tank. He has been a great fish and never bothered the other fish in the tank. For 10 years his best friend was a very active Angelicus Catfish, who recently passed away. They seemed to have opposite personalities, but they always stayed together.

A unique and interesting fish. Fun to watch swimming due to their jet propulsion system. Despite their reputation for being virtually immobile they can get active at dusk when accustomed to the tank. Make sure you cover part of the tank with sand for them to bury in.

My mother has two albino cories and I believe she still has her emerald still. They are a very hardy fish that have all grown up in a 10-gallon tank for a little over 5 YEARS now. I recommend this fish for any tank - Beginner and Seasoned - as this fish is a joy to watch and an excellent tank cleaner. I have yet to purchase my own cories as soon as my new 29-gallon tank is better established.
