 Hey
 
 Don't  talk  about  your  similar  sized  fishes  here.  The  pctures  don't  attract  me  into  keeping  such  large  fishes  but  makes  me  think  yummmy.  Two  such  catch  could  satisfy  all  our  500  IAH  members  (fish  eating  though)  :lol:    :lol:    :lol:

 The  Arapaima  Gigas  is  a  cool  one.  And  probably  needs  a  20  feet  tank.
 Does  anybody  have  it  in  India???

 Arapaimas  are  cool  but  have  seen  some  pictures  of  bigger  catfish...  they  seem  to  be  a  very  regular  phenomena  in  the  Amazon...  however...  the  stingrays  are  the  most  fascinating

 Yeah  true  nag,
 We're  talking  about  a  monster  by  the  name  arapiama  which  could  grow  to  a  potential  length  of  15  ft  or  may  be  even  more.    Shocked  
 But  heard  that  one  or  two  in  mumbai  are  having  it.    But  its  endangered  under  CITES  Appendix  1  folks  and  really  doubt  whether  allowed  to  be  housed.  Exclamation    Confused:

 Hard  to  believe  some  species  of  carps  reach  this  size.    Surprised  
 
 The  Mekong  giants  are  known  to  be  'Prize'  catches  with  fishing  expeditions  organised  in  the  western  countries.
 
 Had  seen  a  similar  site  with  listing  of  the  largest  and  heaviest  fish  caught.

 Excellent  link....
 
 In  most  of  the  pics,  I  could  see  these  guys  standing  in  shallow  waters...  does  it  mean  that  they  caught  them  in  the  shallow  waters  or  do  they  just  pose??  Just  wondering........

 Are  these  fishes  predatory  and  /  or  harmful  to  humans??
