    Flappy - this is a HUGE fish. I doubt it that there would be many tanks big enough to hold this fish, or to keep this fish happy in. Contact Wayne of Aqua Concepts. I know for a fact that he is ALWAYS looking for such HUGE fish, because he has clients with MONSTER fish only aquaria.....
    I am just scared that someone with a too small a tank buys this fish from you, just for the fish to be permanently ill, and perhaps die....

    Burt - for a 20cm Regal, not even my 2 metre tank would be big enough. I would say minimum a 2.5 metre, at least 900mm or 1000mm front to back, and minimum 800mm high (top to bottom)...

    Flappy - have you been able to contact Wayne at Aqua Concepts yet? I am quite sure one of his customers with 4000 litres tanks would be interested....
