Eclipse catfish in a community

For anyone wondering about eclipse catfish in a community tank. I would suggest you didn't do that! This is my eclipse catfish after he ate a baby blue gill about the size of the end of my finger. This guy would make a community tank a lonely place after a few nights. Click image for larger version

Haha actually the bluegill was a feeder fish for my largemouth bass. And yes I have a 100 for him.
