Yep, a lump of bone with solid muscle behind it, just like a missile in terms of destructive power.

This is a great read and gives you a look at owning one and moving it to another tank: www.monsterfishkeepers.com/forums/showthread.php?49048-How-We-Moved-Our-5-Foot-Arapaima-Gigas

And I had trouble with a 14" Oscar.... :blush:

Yea, not a small feat for sure. I definitely understand his apprehnsion to moving the fish since they will launch themselves completely out of the water to avoid danger.

Jeremy Wade said after he got chest bumped by an arapaima, that his doctor equated the injury to hitting the steering column in a car during a crash.
