Arrowana can pack a punch as well. Luckily I've never been bitten by this guy but I think if I ever do it will probably require stitches

That picture is priceless.

on the "don't stick your limbs in the tank when he's active" subject ... i am imagining him in a cartoon, like the bulldog that bites someone's *** and stays put like a trap LMAO

He doesn't play.. he just lays on the bottom or in his floating plant waiting on food. Well I guess it could be considered playing when he chases my fingers or begs for food.

I tried a pair of convicts with him but they didn't last long. This is one of my fish that are destined to live in solitary..

But here is a non mouth shot of him hanging out on his driftwood.
