I had 16 tanks when I was in college, living at home. Nice little side business raising angelfish and albino catfish for sale to pet stores. That was over 40 years ago. Now I just put an aerator in my minnow bucket. LOL

Really enjoy my aquariums. I have 2, 55 gallon and 2, 10 gal tanks. I use the 10 gallon tanks to grow plants for my larger tanks and to grow out fry. Nice relaxing hobbie I've enjoyed since being a youngster.

I used to have a small 30 gallon tank with some fish in it. It had a giant and I mean GIANT algae sucker that literally ruled the tank. I also had a small minnow I had caught from the creek in there. The minnow grew to at least 4". I was amazed by how long it lived. I'm thinking about a tank or very small outside "garden" pond for some bass or bluegill.

I have a 45-gallon Lake Tanganyika tank beside me as I work. Current inhabitants:

3 male X. kilesa, a sand-sifter. Very active with subtle colors. They keep the bottom stirred up.

4 Synodontis lucipinnis. Most active catfish I've ever kept. These little buggers swim all over and will even feed on the surface, upside down.

2 Cyprochromis females.

1- Lamprologus compressiceps. To pick off the brood if any other fish start mating.

1 - Plecostomus catfish, for clean-up.

I've had Several freshwater tanks over the years, The saltwater tanks take too much time and investment for me.

Any amount of any fish in a tank and a small dogfish = just the dogfish in short time, lol. Anything that can fit thru the mouth disappears, fish, amphibian or turtle! Grew up with, and parents still have, a 8x10 room divider of aquariums that have held anything that lives in fresh water in them over the years(except saltwater, never got into that). Many hours watching fish, great enjoyment.


I've learned enough thru the years to now know that I don't know enough. KNOWLEDGE IS FREEDOM.

Today I bought some red tailed sharks, glo tetras, and a couple other neat fish that I don稚 know what they are. The glo fish will look good with a black light.


Store had some of those giant algae eaters. I didn稚 realize they got so big. These were at least a foot

we've got a pond with koi.

pretty sure they are natural (they were there when we bought the house wink )

i dont do much with them - other than feed occassionally and make sure the water is moving through.
there's about 6 that are over 15", another 20 between 6" and 15" and hundreds under 6"

I've put a few government trout in there, but don't think they have survived.

During the spring and summer I have a 100 gallon poly tank running, with bluegills and other bait. Have a cheap ebay 100 gallon filter on it , seems to work great the last couple years. Allows myself to have bait to fish for flatheads.

James does your catfish look like this?
I picked these up at Wally World for my 60 hex tank. They were in a cory tank and they sure aren't a cory. Appears they are going to get too big for my tank set up now. Couple bleeding hearts,blood fins and some rummy nose along with a Plecostomus so far. Working on getting plants going as my nitrate level is higher then I like.

Those catfish look like synodontis of some sort. They are from africa.

I raise cories for hobby and resale. Have various tanks going, and always adding more.........

I was up to 5 tanks at one time and decided I needed to cut back LOL. Selection here even going to Memphis or Jackson,MS is slim. I prefer the Australian Rainbows but can't find them here.

Those are a Synodontis catfish, not sure what species. Not the lucipinnis, which stay small and are very active. I'm pretty sure I once owned a fish like the one on the right in that photo, but I don't recall which Synodontis it is.

Synodontis don't get that big. I've seen them up to six inches long or so. They will be predatory at that size.

Think found the closest match. Seems they change color as the age from black and white to brown and black. There are also hybrids as well that will make identification harder. https://www.liveaquaria.com/product/1594/?pcatid=1594 At any rate will need a bigger tank or re-home them in the near future.
