Hmm...that's...unsettling. I've never heard reports of a fish getting larger in captivity than it does in the wild, although I've definitely heard of animals living longer in captivity than their wild counterparts. Even in public aquariums I've never seen one bigger than a foot or so.

Unsettling is exactly the word I would use. Course it was the capper on a night that was totally verkakte, so it had a multiplied impact. Nevertheless, I like my snakey buddies, and I don't want to get rid of them, but my Bushfish are like prickly puppy dogs and I would be crestfallen if the bichirs went om nom nom on them.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
