you need around 300 gallons minimum for one of them, my local aquarium has a fully grown one, its very big trust me.

you can buy those automatic feeders (there machines, not those little chalky blocks that are meant to last for a few days) they cost around 25 dollars each, you can fit around 2-4 weeks food in there but for a fish that big you might need quite a few of those machines....

ermizam I was just wondering what size tank you have?

ermizam 03-05-2007 10:31 PM

tank size..
 
3 ft length & 1.5 ft width.....i guest...is it ok? :)

musho3210 03-05-2007 10:35 PM

not really, needs at least 6 feet (72 inches) by 2 feet (24 inches) by 2 feet (24 inches)

the tank will be ok while the fish is still small but when it is fully grown it will need a tank that big.
