    What little I know about upside down cats is that they grow to 4 inches, need to be in a school and require a fairly large tank to handle their waste. They are catfish after all.

    I think there are different kinds. I have one about five inches long.
    I have had it for at least 15 years. It will swim normally getting food of the bottom.
    Most of the time it hangs out under a small tree stump.
    Very easy to take care of eats anything.

    this may yield a little more info.
    As you can see, some variety can be quite large, the asians are often sold as commons, you can see the problem there.
