    I have been looking at fish, deciding what will be next to add to the collection. I came across a "Dwarf Goonch Catfish". All of the sites I came across said that it gets to 80 inches, but one site said that it will only get to 8 inches if it is a Dwarf Goonch, and that most sites have the wrong size info on it. The fish, at the moment, is only a baby and around 1/8 of an inch. Has anyone had experience with this species of fish, or others similiar to it that can tell me what it eats or what you feed it? I am hoping to purchase one, seems how it looks like a good price.

    lol, I was told it is 1/8 of an inch, but it could have been a mistake. Either way, I can raise it to it adult size of 8 inches.
