"Hi community! My Spotted Raphael was purchased in Chico CA when I was a whole three years old. She's still doing strong to this day, which surprised be at first, considering I'm currently 22 and I've moved states twice.
Knowing nothing about keeping a fish, I kept her in a 20 gallon tank her whole life with a log in the back, with enough room to enter/exit from either side. She's roughly four and a half inches long and very fat.
She's extremely social, has never attacked my water snails or clams (large invasive canal snails/clams), and always, without fail, eats anything I drop next to her log- even during the day. She's currently 20 years old and stil going strong.
I really think it's due time the article be updated to show they live at least an average of 15/20 years, considering the other comments I've read. Anyway they're amazing fish, and having read the comments and article, I'll be upgrading to a 45 gallon tank and attempt to find another Spotted Raphael for her to be friends with."
