How big of a tank would you need for that thing??? Its insane. I've never heard of it before

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

Lol, ok so I did a bit of research, and if I could get an 8 foot long tank and like 3 feet wide I could keep one for a while. But I don't have the space or money for that still cool fish, check it out.

I think thats a different fish. This ones a Hydrolycus Armatus, and the ones that like to school are scombs. Apparently the Armatus can't be kept together.

Little fuzz these fish can be kept together and do well as long as you have enough room and enough live for for them. I used to have one for about 3 months that i was holding for a friend. Amazing hunters.

Really? thats interesting.

Theres a video of... payaras or something... They look just like this guy only smaller. And the way they hunt is so messed up They hunt swimming vertically with their noses to the ground and then once they get kind of close to a prey they straighten themselves out and strike. Lol I can't describe it very good.. .I'll find the video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1GMJ...eature=related

But these guys aren't the same, apparently they are the smaller ones and often confused for the Hydrolycus Armatus.
