No letter "r" between "i" and "c", Daz. I knew Rob's pics will attract Daz. Daz is too much with monster fishies.

Nice pics, Rob. I like the giant gourami.

I wonder if you could have kept the Clarias, grown them bigger, then eat them!

Sounds better than a cory atleast

Just a note on the snakeheads... they are now illegal to keep in many states. They are eating machines, nasty and like to jump. The also grow quite large, so they eat anything they can fit into their mouths.
Also, with the polyterus, if you want to keep them again, be careful to keep only one to a tank, they tend to be aggressive and eat even each other if they are at all different in size. This is another fish that gets quite large, up to a foot long, and definately predator. They're a great bottom feeder for something like an oscar tank or other large south and central american cichlids.
Just don't want to see you lose more fish needlessly... these guys are awesome but require large tanks and a lot of care to keep them fed properly.
I wish they'd take the giant gourami's off the open market... nobody can afford to keep a fish like that to full grown, it's not practical.

Agreed.
My lfs has two giant gouramis which are barely 5 inches at the moment. It seems they don't grow in a 5 gallons tank. They are already in the lfs tank for about 4 months and seem the same in size. I wonder who will buy such potentially large fish.
I just hope it's not those rich kds. One giant gourami costs 1500 pesos here. And that is about 2-3 discus alone.

That is so sad. What stunts the growth isn't the size of the tank, it's the nitrate levels in the water. That is also a slow and agonizing death for the fish. Unfortunately, fish like those usually die, too young, in store tanks and never find a home. If I can get enough signatures for my petition (it's posted in the announcements board), then places like that, incidents such as those, would be enforced by our animal cruelty laws. That is the sort of thing I am working so hard to put a stop to. For whatever the reason, the majority of our population still sees fish as a "disposable species", and they pay no attention to the amount of cruelty and neglect that is happening. If that were a large dog kept in a small kennel, they would get fines and end up shut down. Some things just aren't right, no matter how you look at it. Cruelty to animals is cruelty to animals, all the way around.
