205. sasdrum (k: 4) since 2011-11-02, who writes, "I LOVE these fish! They are so cool! They usually stay in my log with my Rainbow Shark til 9 a.m. then they come out and explore the tank til about 10:30 when the sunlight hits the tank and they duck back into the log til around 5 p.m. I feed about quarter til but they seem to like to wait for the pellets to dissolve some. They stay out about til midnight. To be honest I wanted Pictus, but I stumbled upon a situation where I could get some free fish and the Pictus looked awful, but these little guys had been there for about a week and were still looking good. Walmart had advertised them as Lace Catfish (They're now calling some Orange Squeakers Lace cats. Haha!) I normally avoid Walmart fish but needed a Molly for school, but since they were still alive I figured they were pretty healthy. I've had them two weeks now and they've grown a 1/4 of an inch. In that time, I have become a fan. They don't swim around the tank constantly, in fact they seem to prefer hanging out in/on some of my false plants (I have a mix of life and fake). I have to say that the hardest thing to get used to is that they will sometimes lay upside down under the plant leaves. Initially, I thought they were dying and stuck my hand in there to make sure that was not the case. Now I'm much more accustom to it and I think these quirks add the draw of this breed. I'm currently working on getting everything set up for a 55 gallon tank. Since this tank will be staying at my school's science department (can't have it in the dorm) for the next four years, I'm working to create a habitat that will be a cross between their natural African rivers and my shark's Aisan river basins. I should have this tank started on the cycling process no later than the end of January. :)";

He gets really excited every time his tank is cleaned and checks out the placement of everything, zooms around what looks like very happily, checking everything out. He loves his rock cave. Now that we know what kind of catfish he is, we know that we'll eventually have to upgrade the size of his tank. Presently it's 10 gallon. His tankmates are one Siamese Fighting Fish (who keeps clear of Bob who is the boss) and 12 neons. Bob is pretty peaceful with the other fish, but he does show the Siamese Fighting Fish who's boss every once in a while by occasionally chasing him away (but he doesn't bite at or nibble the other fish). Bob was 2.5" (64 cm) long when we first got him (or her)? and now he's 6" long.";

269. QuantumManiac since 2014-06-20, who writes, "Name: Namu (after the Sumerian goddess of the primeval sea). Beautiful fish. I love her dorsal fin. Not particularly aggressive in general, but she WILL NOT TOLERATE corydoras catfish. I keep her with my Malawi cichlids. As of right now, she's the undisputed tank boss. Never starts a fight, but she's more than happy to finish one. She was almost full grown when I got her and I'm pretty sure she was never given live food. She left ghost shrimp alone for over a month and was terrified by a live nightcrawler. However, she has no problem eating small tankmates.";
