Stugeons are very common in Koi ponds over here in Holland, allthough the end up like the one in the picture...
They tend to scare after a heavy thunderstorm and jump out of the pond.
Plus they cant swim backwards, so if there's any plants, they tend to swim themselves stuck and die... :(

"Research indicates snakeheads likely originated in the south Himalayan region of Indian subcontinent (modern-day northern India and eastern Pakistan) at least 50 million years ago"

Also I think one of the distinguishing characteristics of an ancient fish is the ability to breathe atmospheric air. It would take a significant amount of time and evolution to make that kind of adaptation.
