Default B. tigrinum catfish keepers, tell me your setup!

So how do you keep your tig catfishes? I had one a long time ago, and I did not take care of the water properly (there is an old thread somewhere in here, hehe), and it died... But finally after about 5-6 years i got a hold of a new one, and I feel ready to give it my best shot.

So how do you keep yours?

-Tanksize?
-Waterflow (low, medium, strong - fish resting on the floor or always swimming)?
-Tankmates?
-Furniture/baretank?
-Food (what kind and how often)?
-How long have you kept it, how big as it grown?

I have read that this fish swims A LOT in the wild, so I am curious of how long you have had yours alive and in what environment.

Thanks! My first post in here for a long time...

Oh no, that sucks! I feel like they die from just anything sometimes...

I have seen some awesome, big sized ones around here... Would be awesome to see some pictures of the tigs when small and then the growth until large!
