    This fish has become one of my favorite pets.

    Its now in a 300 gallon vat. It eats cichlid pellets and pieces of fish, and shrimp. These guys grow pretty quick until about the 1 1/2 foot mark. Other than that, treat it like anyother tropical fish. Oh, it will kill anything with it, so it must be kept solitary. Some people have had luck keeping other fish with it, but usually its only temporary.

    I wouldn't see how anyone could keep it with other fish, because of its massive size. Very nice picture! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
