Thank you I seen him looking all sad at my lfs and had to give him a home. I love catfish of all kind and luckily these guys stay small enough to keep once my larger tank is established I hope to add a friend for him in the shape of a striped Rafael

My personal opinion is that any fish that grows above 1ft long at adulthood doesn't belong in home aquaria and should require a licence to keep.
I agreed with you until you said a fish above 1 ft long shouldnt be in home aquaria. My adonis pleco has been living comfortably in my 125.

Yea I think regardless of the size of fish if it has adequate space to move around hide etc then it's ok. A lot of placos will reach well over 1ft. My pops had one that was 32inches

I also have 3 saltwater water tanks one being 200G so I do know what I'm doing. He is my only fish in that tank has been for years and he is so happy and awesome so it's all good not really here to care what negative people have to say.

Ultimately it's your pet. You will are paying for him. If he is eating and not showing any signs of stress then I see no issue. It's like keeping a snake. You can keep a large snake I a fairly small enclosure and ITT is just fine. Not like your keeping a red tail car in there.

He is still young, I fed him as soon as we got home and got him acclimated. He devoured the pellets and then I fed him again that night and again he devoured the pellets. We shall see how he grows.

Yea just don't want him to fatten up too soon as it's going to be about 3 months until my big tank is set up
