Yeah, I couldn't get close to it because it hung out in the deep end of the pond... The guy told me its name--started with an A... similar to Arapoaha as I recall. The back portion of its tail looked almost like an arowana, but the front portion looked more like a Pike Cichlid of some sort.

Arapaima gigas.....the Pirarucu....a Osteoglossiforme related to the arowanas....can reach lengths of 12' or more.

Great SA tank pics, and I love the bowfin pics.
