I am getting 2, they are a schooling fish when young but they grow they split up and then eventually form breeding pairs and guard their eggs/fry with ferocity. I am hoping to get a tank that's at least 300 gallons, hopefully closer to 500. My tigerfish is the vittatus so they don't get as big as a Goliath. They reach approx 3 feet in length. I will likely build a custom tank that offers a larger footprint and not as much height as a typical tank. It will also need tight fitting lids as snakehead are jumpers. They also breathe air which you can actually seem them do in the video I posted. I am stoked, taking the little guy with me here shortly to go get them.

Oh on a side note, I am so getting the season of river monsters with the tigerfish and snakehead, with luck I'll watch it tonight with the kids.

Thats so cool!! Are there any other fish that you can add eventually? Red bellys?

That is awesome, will the 300-500 be built into the wall?

What family are snakeheads in? Are they labyrinth fish? I like their markings. U dont think he and the tigerfish will fight? I wish I had the space for a tank like that

That looks like a synodontis multipunctatus. Do a google search and that should help, it's definitely a synodontis catfish.
