a few pics of my wolf fish
 
this is my latest addition, a 4 inch wolf fish Hoplias malabaricus

this was taken on the first day I got him, around 7 days ago

these show just how quickly they gain weight with a decent diet

Really nice fish! I'm jealous.

I too would like to know what size he is.

Really cool looking fish. They grow up to around 63cm right?

he was only 14.95.
they max out at 2 foot in the wild, but 18 inch would be large for an aquarium kept one.
the most amazing thing is, in the wild adults will hold off attacks from schools of piranah
