I bought two striped rafaels. One has a solid black belly, the other has a solid white belly. Evidently one is a female and the other is a male. Have had them in a 47 gallon tank for 6-7 months. They are now breeding. When the babies start free swimming they get sucked up in the filter. So if you are trying to breed these fish, they like it dark, no lights, they like coverage, a cave, plants. Leave them alone except for food and it just happens naturally? But I will change my filter for the babies sake.

Hi, I have an irridescent shark/sutchi and i dont recomend it to beginners because he gets frightened very easy, but if you show him who is boss when you are cleaning the tank and let him get used to you he will go to the other side of the tank and wont flip out.

Hi, I have a Pangasius Cat (who only has one eye) and he was almost dead when I got him (purchased him from Petsmart where they said they only grow to 6"! HA! I purchased him because they were ready to throw him in the garbage can!). This fish took a day to unstress but is very healthy now. He was only about 2" when I got him and now is about 6 1/2". He used to dart into things and skin himself up until he got used to the surroundings. Was very scared when anyone walked up to the tank and now LOVES people! He comes over and stares at you with his one eye and goes into a feeding frenzy when he gets his green floating pellets. He is in a 55 gallon with a large pleco, a banjo cat, 4 corys, a spotted green puffer, and a pearl flowerhorn. Everyone gets along great. He will be going into larger tanks when he gets bigger and will eventually have a redtail cat as a friend when large enough. Good luck to everyone with their fish and happy holidays!

I currently have 1 Banjo Cat (male) who is about 5 1/2 inches long. I purchased him from a local pet store. The pet store I purchased him from had one other but refused to sell that one to me as they thought it was almost dead. They refused to listen about how these fish do not move much during the day (this place always has lights on and does NOT have places for these fish to hide) and they kept poking it and eventually threw it out. Im glad I atleast was able to rescue one of them! Most people do not understand these fish and I have heard of a few people flushing them or throwing them away (when the fish was perfectly healthy!!!). Its sad. Mine loves blood worms and will even go after them in the day time with everyone watching. They are very incredible fish and remind me of something you would find in a saltwater tank instead of fresh.

HI IM MIKE FROM PAIGTON i have a sutchi. i think these fish are great and they have alot of character. i have been keeping fish for about 5 mouths and im learning fast. the sutchi was one of my first fish. i dont recommend this because they are hard to keep as my first sutchi died. but i didnt give up i bought one a week later and had it ever since. sutchis are usually first to catch illness as parasites can attach themselves to them more easily. my sutchi is in quarantine with ulsers on his nose from darting about the tank but is recovering. he will go into my 6x2x2 ft. when hes fully grown ill have a 8x4x2 ft.

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.
