 the  african  might  be  able  to  eat  the  killie  only  after  it  reaches  at  least  13-14"  not  before  that,  as  these  guys  are  filter  feeders

 thank  you  
 
 its  an  african  arowana,  the  only  filter  feeder  in  the  arowana  family,  and  the  closest  cousin  to  the  arapaima  gigas,  so  this  fish  is  one  among  the  oldest  fish  fish  on  earth.
 
 you  missed  out  on  a  few  posts  i  made  a  little  earlier,  anyways  this  guy  can  get  to  30"  in  aquaria,  a  little  slow  but  he  will  be  there,  but  the  killie  isn't  mine
