I think these fish are really cool as well. :)
BGK's get very big; they usually get 16"-20", but some can actually reach 24". They can be housed in a 55G tank when they are young, but should eventually be moved into a larger tank.
Your gonig to want to have floating plants, because they are very shy and sensitive to light. They need a lot of hiding spots, and are nocturnal as well.
They are carnivores, and frozen blood/black worms are a good diet. They should take freeze-dried as well, and like live worms as well.
They are peaceful to most communtity fish. They will establish a territory and chase other fish away, but they should keep them alone for the most part. Only 1 BGK should be in a tank.
