i have a lake chubsucker in my 29 g tank, with coastal shiners, mollies, topminnows,a swamp darter, all small fish. the chubsucker is growing slowly, currently 6 in., I like him, he seems nonaggresive, not very active, and a good cleaner, and my only large fish, other than a texas cichlid that has his own tank, but the fl. collector guide says he gets to 16 in. and categorizes him as not suitable fr aquaria. Will he really get that big, and is there anything else that makes him not suitable

I would believe Brian, but I really think you owe it to the rest of us to just keep this experiment going. I'm sure that they are not aggressive. I think the only issue is they might get too big. But you need to prove that to all of us. How long have you had him? Has he actually grown over that time?

thanks Brian, i've had him about 6 months i think, he was only about 2.5 in. then , he hangs around in back of tank cleaning bottom, and a little algae off bottom. i recently got some shrimp sticks which i'm feeding. not flashy at all, but fun when you notice this big guy on bottom. Had a fat sleeper before, but as he grew fish began to disappear.
