"My hubby bought each of our larger aquariums one of these lovely gems when they were small. His tank had tetras and danios and various fish; my 55 gallon had (and still has) fancy guppies that I have been breeding for a long time, and I mean FANCY. WELL... these stupid creatures are huge and both tanks would have entire fish disappear in hours, babies, adults, you name it. Horrible. He had just added some really cute new fish to his tank (thankfully they are peaceful community fish that now live in my tank), and only 2 hours later one was found with its innards consumed!!! I went to the pet store with my suspicions and was told exactly what I thought. When they are large -- and mine are a foot long each now -- they feast on fish and shun the algae wafers and algae, and suck on the slime of the fish and then attack, devouring the whole fish. I was told they can adopt these horrid creatures out for me, but honestly, I'd like to catch them and toss them out into the yard. In the meantime, I moved all of the peaceful community fish from the other tank into mine after catching the horrible beast in my tank, and that took 40 minutes, and put it in my husbands tank. They can contend with each other at this point. Horrid, horrid fish. I got a little 2 inch bottom feeder that doesn't grow any larger and doesn't attack fish and it's amazing how different the tank is behaving today."
