Striped Raphael Catfish
waste of money
its a very timid fish, never comes out i cant see it ever even if i keep my lights off. i think it or my black ghost knife fish ate my tetras. in a tank you want to see you pets to make sure they are doing fine, enjoy their activities, this one never comes out i took it out once to make sure its doing ok otherwise it just hides inside the cave

These fish are fun to keep and they are also called Talking Catfish because they can make a croaking noise. Although shy they are more for the fish keepers that have experience.

Striped Raphaels Are Awesome!
i bought mine at about 1inch long and two months later they are 3inches. they grow extremely fast when fed properly and i think i have a couple. I have heard that they are semi-aggressive but they havn't tried to eat anything. They are even scared of my 3 black kuhli loaches. They hide together all day long when the light is off (mine aren't very nocturnal). I personally think they are amazing to watch swim around together. my only problem with them is that i rarely see them.

best fish ever
it is great fun to watch nice to other fish you don't need to feed it all that fancy freeze dried stuff just regular trop. fish flakes soon the flakes will be alge and the fish will just eat the alge mine is huge and that's all I feed it.you don't need driftwood or plants just some stuff it can hide in,other fish,and rocks. this fish is not complecated at all very easy I recommend 10+ ages and at LEAST 10-15 gallons also it doesn't really like the light so don't turn your fish tank lights on to often! im very pleased with it!!! my favorite fish!!!!and if it stays in decorations caves and such for a while don't worry it will be fine it comes out to eat and do its thing at night.
