I used to have clarias, but got fed up with them as they always managed to get out of the tank. A friend of mine had two which grew to over a foot long and gave them up as they destroyed the landscaping in his tank.

mine i hope is fully grown at 16", i have to have fake plants as he just kept uprooting real ones and i have a heavy lid on my tank

Hey i love catfish, i have 1 synodontis, several cories and a black and red shark, catfish are my favorites but not the clarias type. Someone else probably felt like i do but instead of taking his back to the shop, he dumped it in the school pond which has the murkiest water ever and the poor thing survived...

Hi Oceane.:wave:

What's that black and red shark?:) If it was red-tailed black shark, then it's a cyprinid, not catfish.:mrgreen:

They're Epalzeorhynchus species, Oceane.:) Danios also have those 'whiskers'.
