Hi There,

In answer to your questions there are two good articles on the Cephalosilurus spp. here http://www.scotcat.c.../article102.htm and here http://www.scotcat.c...s/article94.htm.

Trachycorystes trachycorystes is a very aggressive species and can grow to over a foot so I would say the smallest tank would need to be 4ft. and you would need to watch what you put in with it as they can kill other species. I will be compiling a factsheet next month for this species.
