That's what two different lfs
recommended to me this morning when I was enquiring about a single, large growing CICHLID for my 6' tank.
I'm looking for an alternative to the Oscar, but a barramundi!! They must have bought too many of them and are trying to unload them before they get BIG. And they get big quickly.
While I was there a lady bought 5 comets for $8 for her little girl's tank
I asked if she knew how big they grow. She was of the firm belief that tank size determines fish size.
