Dwarf snakeheads are pretty popular in Europe. This site is very heavily based on North American users, so they don't come up too often. And they are no harder to provide for then a bichir. Pretty sure for dwarf snakeheads the minimum tank size is a 40B or similar.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

I read about dwarf snakeheads in Amazonas, they had an article, and they are beautiful fish, not like those scary monsters, but they still reach 8" I believe. Still illegal though I'm guessing because it falls under "snakehead."

Yea, haha pets don't really survive here, but I think it's good that they're illegal, it's for the greater good I mean. Honestly I was surprised that they were illegal to own, in Ontario generally unless it's native you can own it no problem.

Not only were they out the next day to shock (kill ALL fish) the pond, but they shocked ALL the ponds in the area, because they can travel and live on land for several days. We had to find a new place to fish.

Snakeheads are illegal in many countries for a reason - they destroy habitats. While they may be cool and impressive in some respects, they pose an insurmountable threat to our native fish populations and should be treated like the highly invasive species they are. No good can come from keeping one as a pet.

Sorry for the rant, but it is a very serious issue.

Sorry but I am a Channa fanatic, over here it is not a invasive species because what we catch we eat.

Otherwise I take care of channa micropeltes because their meat are very yummy and is believe to have so many benefits!

plus! its clean cause I took care of it and fed it.

Back to topic!

Thanks for giving me the head up.
Its not a quarantine tank its a 10 gallon but consider it that.

Still gonna get a 75 gallon need to save money first, the fish is just 4 inches long and 2 inches wide.

Though is it a Stardust ZZ? or what? ^^.
