"I bought my Striped Raphael when he was only about 1-1/2 inches long. I have now had this fish for 12 years. He is now 8-1/2 inches long, not counting his whiskers. He is extremely inactive, except at feeding time. His favorite food is the Hikari Tropical Sinking Wafers. He cannot wait for them to sink, though. He comes to the top of the tank and catches them on the way down. He will even take them from my fingers. His eating habits are often very irregular. Sometimes he will go for two weeks without eating anything, but occasionally he will eat 8 wafers in one evening. He also sleeps in very strange positions. More than once I have thought he was dead because he would be floating upside down and motionless under something in the tank. Lately, he sleeps standing on his tail between the heater and the corner of the tank. He has been a great fish and never bothered the other fish in the tank. For 10 years his best friend was a very active Angelicus Catfish, who recently passed away. They seemed to have opposite personalities, but they always stayed together. "
