- Pet catfish devastate ecosystems when set free: "The fish, in the family Loricariidae, are marketed as “plecos” or “algae eaters” and are popular in the multibillion-dollar pet industry. Several species of loricariids, also known as sailfin catfishes, have become established outside their native ranges after aquarium owners let them loose in warm fresh and brackish waters"
- Catfish are observed hunting and eating pigeons
- Fighting fish 'take a breather':"Dr Portugal explained that for the fighting fish this "seemingly gentleman-like behaviour" is purely tactical."

I am using this one to house three dwarf orange crayfish and some red cherry shrimp. The tank seems to be a good quality for the price and displays well. Now I just need to get some plants to grow up enough to conceal the filter a bit....

You can use an air-pump, line and air-stone. Personally I prefer a Hagen submersible filter, it injects air directly into the outflow. This helps recreate the basic environment required for a species adapted for life in a river.
CPOs seem to vary greatly in aggressiveness but it is wise to give then lots of hiding places and not overstock. I would suggest a baseline of three gallos for obe, and at least a gallon for each additional crayfish.
