That's a Goliath African Tiger Fish. Believe it or not, people actually keep these things in fish tanks. I've seen them for sale at fish stores for about $300 for a 6-8" fish. The one in the picture is just about the biggest one I've ever seen. I've read they usually get to around 3-3 1/2 feet in home aquariums, and since they're fast-moving schoolers, they're really only suited to the largest fish tanks. They're highly predatory, but actually not all that aggressive/territorial.

i would have thought home aquaria would be unsuitable for a fish
that will grow that big,and in a group too,you'd need one
of those tanks that takes up a whole room. !!

Well, by "home aquaria" I mean absolutely huge tanks. I've read that 1,000 gallons per fish is suitable, and you need a school of them to keep them happy, so you get the idea.

That would be cool! Although I'd be afraid my not-too-bright doggie would jump in there to get the fish and the fish would have themselves a nice snack.
