Be prepared to buy alot of feeders and a large tank just for him. Snakeheads are natural killers. Kind of the Ted Bundy type if you know waht I mean.

If your in a legal area id get one. Rainbows stay on the smaller side of snakeheads so a 60-75 should be fine for one. Tankmates are iffy as it is a predator with the ablity to kill fish larger than it self to take that into consideration when choosing tankmates. Also i rainbows are very beautiful so id try to get it on a diet of prawns and cut up white fish or smelt rather than live feeders.

I'm pretty sure snakeheads are illegal in all 50 states if your in the U.S.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Yes, but perfectly legal in the UK. Just depends where cartman lives.
