I used to have some. They really are a neat fish. You need a 40B or 55 minimum for 1 full grown adult... and thats pushing it. Better to do it in a 75. Anything that fits in their mouth or remotely looks like food will become it.

Haha. I think I was just weirded out by the thing growing out its nose... it looked like an extended nostril or something :P I can't say I particularly like them, but they do have a nice pattern. I hope you enjoy having one though! It must be tough taking care of such a huge fish! (Though one day I plan to have one of those sharks... y'know Big Als sells those for 2500$ each? And they don't stop growing. You have to trade it for a new one every few years... O_O can you imagine? lol)
