2. Blairc (k: 6) since 2004-04-26, who writes, "These timid Cats are very good eaters, and can be fed on a diet of flakes, frozen and live food. They are extremely sensitive to changes in water conditions, and will go white when stressed. These fish enjoy having peaceful tankmates and a good plant. These Catfish are my favourite fish, and have been through the thick and thin of my fishkeeping career.";
3. snowball (k: 25) since 2005-06-21, who writes, "They split up into two groups during the day, both sheltering under overhang wood. At night they all school along the front of the tank in the current. I feed them at night, but they will come out during the day when they smell food.";

59. L number Banana (k: 3) since 2010-02-15, who writes, "Can be hand fed with frozen brine shrimp, they tickle your palm :-) Very cool fish to watch, sometimes bicker among themselves and will often chase larger tetras away from food. Update winter 2012: lost three when lid broke and they jumped out.";

72. Anthonyck (k: 2) since 2011-05-01, who writes, "Lost one of original six early on. Remaining species are doing well, though a couple are growing much more rapidly than others. Inconsistent shyness; seem very sensitive to any changes, water cleaning, noises, etc. June 2012: lost one when moving tank. Did not get water temp balanced quickly enough, and a few kryptopterus seemed to "sink" because of the temperature change. One did not survive this disturbance; all others recovered completely. Feb 14 2015 - two adults remain in the 75 gal. Again the move claimed a few.";

92. dpm1 (k: 5) since 2014-01-24, who writes, "Kept in a mixed community where they are pretty much the biggest fish. They hover in the rear but aren't shy or skittish including hand feeding, unmoving during maintenance, and will come forward as soon as the lights dim (and sometimes before, especially if feeding). Can be sexed when carrying eggs but other times almost impossible. Unfortunately didn't see any actual breeding or egg laying.";

100. datfish (k: 8) since 2016-06-01, who writes, "Kept in a dense riparium that receives only natural sunlight, so longer dawn and dusk. The main shoal breaks into three smaller ones during the day, with two swimming only six or so inches apart and a pair accross the tank. At dawn they all group together in the densest part of the plants. During their peak sunlight hours they are more active, exploring the planted sections. During dusk they come out into the open to search for food.";

106. OregonOutdoorsChris (p: 2, k: 6) since 2017-07-30, who writes, "Not shy at all. Swim in open water despite plenty of hides available. Recognize people as food provider and swim to the front when people are present. Readily eat flake, tubifex, mosquito larva, etc... Didn't predate on nano fish such as Boraras, but did stress them out.";
