Nice video, but I am not a fan of the fish. Snakeheads, talapia, and carp, are destroying the native fish populations in North America.

Well this fishes did not aked to become north americans ;) also this is not north america and looks more like asia.

It also just should show that this fish do not deserve such bad publicity in the US and that they are better parents fish as most cichlids while guarding there fry for 5 to 7 months long that they only have to fear the upper food chain.

The lake with this fish inside is actually in Singapore www.google.de/maps/place/MacRitchie-Stausee,+Singapur/@1.344...ata=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x31da174a834d5455:0x3ea3612250057dc4



the same area just with breeding massive peacocks.


Daddadoo i know Channas, i keep a drawf species Channa stewartii that goes max out to 9 to 9.8 inches.




An still not burried aquatic dream of me is a pair of Channa barca



But here you need a tank in the 8 to 10 feet wide and 4 feet deep Region while the fish can become about 25 to 28 inches. But if you can afford and even be able to get a pair of barcas you don't care about the price of the setup while the fishes cost about 1500 to 2500 US Dollars per Exemplar.

What did you expected from an 3 to 4 feet growing predatory fish :P ? Micropelets just do not belong in an normal home aquarium. You can maybe think about an single exemplar with an 2000 to 3000 Gallons tank :)

Anyway Snakeheads are like cichlids also very intelligent for fish. You can even learn not to bite ;)

Snakeheads are awesome predators. Since they are not allowed in the US, it just makes them more desirable.
