Once had a Raphael catfish that was proficent at eating young molliies. Problem was ,, as he grew larger, (most max out at 6in.) he also developed a taste for the adults as well.When I first got him,her ,I kept the fish in a ten gal. for nearly six months and fed it various foods ,while also using the ten gal to house the baby mollies while deciding on which ones to keep.Babies kept vanishing so I placed the now much larger raphael in 55 gal with the adults and it was there, that I discovered that adult mollys were also vulnerable.They are a sneaky and largely nocturnal fish and prolly not what one would wish if your aim is to see a lot of him or her. Along the same lines as clown plecos.

A goldfish will eat the fry. And if or when he gets too big for the tank, toss him in a pond and buy another one for 12 cents.

An already stocked 10 gallon tank is too small for a goldfish before it ever even touches the water.
