upside down catfish

Thinking about getting 3 of these for a 30 gallon community tank to go along with 3 peppered cory that I already have.

Does anyone have any experience with them? Do they get really big? I have read 4 inches.

I though about getting them but went with the clown pleco.
From what I recall- most sites say they max out at 4 inches

The ones I saw liked hanging out in lava rocks.

I do not think a 30 gallon will be big enough for them. If you plan for them to be the main fish and only stocking with bottom feeders and the occasional small mid-level fish.

ETA: Sorry, I don't know why. But I was thinking of the African Featherfin Catfish. Probably because I was thinking about stocking a few of those.

So I think they should be fine in the 30 gallon.

I love featherfins! If I had a big enough tank Is get one in a heart beat!


But I have a question about upside down cats.
Anyone think it would be fine to have 3 cats with a kuhlie loach or two in a 22 cube?
Here is a pic of my tank. All that is In it at the moment is a apple snail:




Feedback is welcome!
