Good algae eater while young. Slow to mature. Can get up to 11 inches (rarely) Very agressive but a good cleaner. Loves to harass other fish especially at feeding time. Tolerates wide variety of water conditionsand temps. Hard to kill. Even harder to catch. When bigger will kill large slow moving fish by attaching onto the side of the fish and sucking at the slime coat. The fish you love to hate and hate to love.

here's a good link that can provide more info than I can.
