Hmmm, I'm not sure. Possibly plenty of LR, maybe a cave to hide in. I think they like to be out swimming and watching you. I believe they need at least a 100G tank. They can possibly eat any inverts you have in the tank, like shrimp, snails and such. Don't use a net when you move him.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
