Oh, he's two inches. I've never seen an adult in real life, only videos and pictures.

I've only ever seen them once before a little over a year ago, about the same size. Not sure why they are so rare. Well, probably because everyone thinks they are ugly and boring.

The lady that got him for me was like "oh... you want one of those?" in disbelief.

He definitely looks like a Billy Bob or something. I thought Jethrow was a great name too....

Oh, and I got another picture of him:



I think his coloration looks pretty good. He has a lot more pattern to him than half of the pictures I have seen. Or maybe I'm just biased<3

haha. Billy Bob is cute. You know, my father's side of the family are basically from the hills (I lovingly call them hillbillies) and I have no family members that have any of these stereotypical names? I'm really curious who came up with these.

Anyway, I'm partial to Smokey since Smokey and the Bandit is a pretty good movie.

Not ugly, just normally invisible by day, and of you do see them they don't move. I love catfish, those included, but banjo's are about as active and exciting as a rock. They are actually social/schooling fish, and cruise around the tank in a group looking for food after the lights are out.

Yeah, I think its because they hide and are not very active. Thats my best guess anyway.
My lfs gets them in every once in awhile, but they are not fast sellers. Actually, I got mine on sale because the lfs lady told me she thought she was all out of banjo cats and then realized she had 3 in a tank still that had been hiding for like 3 months. I am sure they came out at night and ate, but she didn't realize they were even in there.
