Thank you!! Ive had him close to 3 1/2 years and he is currently 23 inches long... I hope you are prepared to have an atleast a 55 gallon tank...we started with a 30 gallon and have had to upgrade twice already. Currently his tank is 4ft long and he is half the length of it...im not sure how much bigger he will get or if I will have to eventually get a larger tank. I havent found much info on them or how big they can get. He is an awesome fish though and my tank setup definitely revolves around my baby!! Lol

I'm definitely interested in this fish and I know how it goes as far as upgrading tank size. We started out with one 10 gallon, now we have a 55 tall, a 55 like yours, a 29 and a the original 10 that started this mess and they are all up and running. With yours being as big as he is what would you consider to be a good tank mate for it?

Good deal! Right now his tankmates are 7 celebes rainbowfish and 7 guppies. I have been looking to add something else but im being very selective because I dont want anything too agressive for my monster...lol...I was wanting an f8 puffer but I am thinking its too much of a gamble due to their aggression. Others that I am currently considering are bumblebee goby and orange chromides...I will update you as to how that works out for me.

Please let me know what you end up doing. I've only been able to find one at Walmart of all places. He will start out in the 29gallon witch houses 5 guppies right now and will eventually be rehomed in a 100 gallon once we move. I would also like to see a video of that monster swimming around........

Thanks for helping my son to convince me!
