"Im one of these people that have let tropical fish take over my life, I live for my fish. I take a particular interest in catfish. I've been reading the comments on Pangasius, this fish should not be sold in pet shops to people who do not realise their full potential. I have a tank measuring 9x3x3.5 and a 20,000 litre heated pond in the conservatory. My largest pangasius in nearly 3 feet long and weighs approx 26lbs. I have 6 in total, they were all cast offs from people who could no longer keep them due to size. In my opinion any animal,(whatever it is) that you buy, you should be able to look after it for the whole of its life. A lot of catfish like Pangasius, Shovel nose, Red tails, Giraffe cats, there's too many to list, but these are frequently available at fish stores from 2" to 6" and look lovely. But they won't tell you, you have a monster on your hands, some like Red Tails will eat most your tank when you get it home. I decided I wanted to KEEP these beautiful fish, so I bought and Built some huge tanks to be able to enjoy them for all their lives. (Recommend building as it's cheaper). If your not prepared to do this then just steer clear, don't waste yor time or money. Above all always research any fish your not sure about before you purchase it. Any fish I see or am offered for whatever reason, if I don't know details about it, I will always go and find out for myself and not take other peoples word for it. I suggest everyone does this. Also, people will tell you their max size in the wild. They seldom reach wild sizes in captivity, that doesn't mean a 6 foot Catfish will only grow 6 inches, it'll probably get to around 3.5 feet, so a little common sense is needed. Happy Fish Keeping."
