Pangasius are not the most striking fish to look at. I recall that they were rarely noticed in my community tank, except for the fact that they're very active.

They would often splash the water at the top of the tank during feeding time to try and knock the flakes into the water.

They can grow very large - large enough to eat. So either trade them in for smaller fish if they become too large for your aquarium, or keep them in a pond to raise as livestock. :)

I've also heard of them being referred to as "sharks" before with one friend who kept 4 in a very large aquarium. Don't bother with plants as they'll eventually being eating them.
