yup, but "you're gonna need a bigger boat"

several of these get huge. for example that Giraffenose will reach the size of a fully mature Carp or more.

and keep an eye on that Hemibagrus. or is he in a tank of his own?

(1) oh yeah! even my 2500 gal in the basement will not suffice in ~5 years. I know. Nice choice of words!!! Funny! :lol: Reminds me of "Jaws I". Did you note the little S aor in the second from the bottom pic?
(2) I absolutely adore Giraffe cats! they can get to 3' mark but 2' is usual max
(3) Wykii Lopa is on his own, yes. I've read on their rep but he appears to be sweet-natured and shy though - he's spent 0.5 year in 2500 gal with a bunch of others and all he did was hide. Never physical damage on him. Now he is under observation because he never, ever came out to eat in the 2500 gal - I had to dig him up from his hideouts to shove food in his mouth every now and then. He is eating fine in his solo tank. He appears to be highly used to people's hands - even in 2500 gal he'd let me touch and lift him even out of the water :shock: . He was a rescue.

(1) Thanks, Richard, shows you how much I know about what I am doing :( :lol:
(2) For you, of course yes! Anything! .............Well, within a reason. Give me some time/days.
