Watched that vid a few times, great specimen of male Dovii. In a 125g, and by the owners own admission, the big fella needs more space. My Jag, smaller than that Dovii has a 180 to himself and looks quite comfy in it. Big angry fish need big space, they don't get enough, they become irritated with small confines.

The Dovii is in a 600 gallon tank.

I meant the vid that UNC-CH posted. Didn't actually watch the other. Is that Guapote Mels big boy. If so, I think I read on MFK that he passed. 11 yrs old, just under 28ins and close to 8lbs

Yup that was Mel's fish....didn't know he passed, he did say he thought he didn't know how much longer he would be around. Shame, magnificent fish.....I would love to have had one of his fry.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
