I have!  A LFS here had one back in teh summer that 
was SO BIG.  i just stopped and stared.  wow.  it was 
at least a foot long.  and likewise tall, and wow.  I had to 
go to the tank of little tinfoil barbs and back again to the 
big one. yep, same fish.  Dear lord.  and i cam close to 
buying soem without knowing HOW BIG they get.  
helped teach me about research.
    i don't know about plants, but I'd say if they do eat 
them, that big fella coul sure take out a lot of plants!
