" My two striped raphael are awesome ! I have had them for nearly a year now and I love them. They have probably more than tripled their size since I brought them home and added them to my catfish family (I have 9 corydoras with them) they just relax and cruise through my tank... they seem to enjoy hanging upside down from ornaments or balancing on the leaves of plants. It's fun to watch my corys pile up on top of them as they all rest together. I find that there are several things to take into consideration when owning them...first make the tank catfish safe! Many catfish will wedge themselves into ornaments and not be able to get out so be sure to provide hiding places that are large enough, and as far as striped raphaels are concerned if you want to see them be active make the tank light a bit dimmer (with a floating plant or something like that) they are nocturnal and with the light dim they happily come out and join the action. I hope to keep my striped raphaels around for a long time (their average life span is around 7-8 years) and would recommend them for any catfish lover."
