    75 Gallon Bala Shark Tank

    Made some changes. The severum has been moved to another tank and the sharks seem to enjoy being the dominant fish again.

    I really like how active they are now! They own the tank :)
    I bet they will be all over the place once you get them in a 300 + gallon ;)

    That is awesome... Although it makes me realize after seeing them (full grown?) in a school like that as they should be... how terrible it is that they're so commonly sold to beginners.

    They are not full grown. They get over a foot. They are not hard to keep but they do need a lot of space.

    Yeah, most people don't have the space for them let alone a group like yours, it's nice.

    It is a fourlined pim.
    Awesome catfish. I used to have a group of three. One didn't survive the move to PEI and the other died around the age of 10 or so years old and around 10 inches or so long. Ironically, the pim at the bottom of the hierarchy is the one that survived.

    Nice, happy to hear you were keeping a group. I had a really nice ornate pim but could not find any buddies for him.. now that I'm thinking about it i'll have to put up a video of him for old times sake...

    These guys also got moved and they were really fun to catch. Water got everywhere! They all survived though. And if all goes to plan, within the next year they will be going to a larger tank (finally...little overdue)
