The tank is too small for that fish.. he will require a 55g... or he will start to have all kinda issues.... hith.. among other things.... pretty fish though

Even a 55g isn't such a good size since its only 13 in front to back. A 75g+ would be better as they can get up to 15 in.

Nope, but they seem pretty easy if you have the right size tank for them. They eat like pigs, and pretty much anything...even dog food.
