"I have two Red-Tailed catfish that just a year ago were as tiny as the typical goldfish would be. They were very cute and I was so enchanted by their exotic beauty I had to have them. I bought three and they were all very small. One -the smallest- quickly became lunch, to my dismay. I learned FAST that these are not your typical pet. Everything from my neon tetras to the plecostamus was disappearing, and the red-tails were growing. One was very aggressive and became much larger than the other. It soon turned its attention for lunch on my other remaining red-tail and I had to get a second 75 gallon tank to keep them apart. By that time they were a over a foot long with heads as large as a size 13 shoe. They eat out of my hands anything I feed them;frozen krill, and frozen or live feeder fish from the local petstore. I have never had a fish or pet that I enjoy caring for more than these catfish. The biggest of them is named Jaws and Whiskers is now growing rapidly since being placed in the new tank. I plan to get larger tanks in the future that resemble the South American habitat they thrive in. That will leave two empty tanks for a possible return of "normal" aquarium keeping..."
