Striped raphael catfish

I don't want to rain on your parade, but you're keeping four rainbow sharks in a 75?? You might run into some problems with that as they mature. Thay can be very territorial and combative with each other. You might have already seen it, but I'm linking their profile for you.

cool thanks for the info. they are very cool with eachother right now and kinda mind their own business, but ya it does say they get more aggressive as they age. thanks
