She grew up in a 75 gallon tank - thrown in as a fry as a feeder. Her attitude is why she survived, I think. Once she was about an inch long, she ruled the tank (African knife, bichir, featherfin - all 7 inches, and a 5 inch ctenopoma, plus the congos). I later moved her to the 55, which had chanchito cichlids (4-6 inches), tiger barbs and others, and she dominate that tank too. She topped out at 2.5 inches, so now she owns the 10 gallon tank, and the right side of my bed. She does share the tank with a nerite snail, amazingly enough. I just put my rabbit snail in there too - trying to find a tank it likes since breaking down the 55.
