    the best home would be a large predator tank, they get big :)

    i saved this one from someone who had him in a small tank and he looked terribly, he is fine now but needs a home. the spca wont take him.:p he is about 10cm and eating anything you give him. i have him in a frag tank with no gravel and seems fine, although unnatural
