They need a MINIMUM 20 gal. tank & get to be VERY aggressive as they age.
My daughter-in-law just lost THREE fish in her 38 gal. community tank to a CAE - a male & female sword fish & a female betta (she caught him in the act of killing "Lilly", but it was too late).
Hardly the cute little algae eater she purchased 1 1/2 years ago!!! He is now by himself in a 5 gal. tank till she can rehome him.
