    the search for the micros...

    So a few of you on here are aware for the past few weeks ive been on a mad hunt for some baby channa micropeltes snakeheads before they most likely ban them here also....I've called every possible pet shop in NS and also NB and nothing..wont order hence my non local orders..EXCEPT for one fella and i thank him from the neighbor province but hes pretty busy at the moment and im a impatient man as he's probably come to lol .....so I went to quebec where their banned, ontario banned, Manitoba..well...the called all shops in Alberta..finally I found a small shop that I wasn't even gonna call but found a guy who could do it...so 6 babies are on their way :)....soon to be monsters.

    For those of you who have never heard of these YouTube them they are the ultimate predator I've never seen something compete in a tank with them and I can't wait.


    I'll post pics when they arrive this week.

    I just saw a video of one eating a huge goldfish and it bit it in half and it was awful. I'm sure you'll be more sensible with feeding and make it humane for the prey. They are amazing fish, can't wait to see pics and vids.

    those puppies get 7 feet!! cant wait to see them in a tank! You should just wall off a section of basement and make it a tank... A few people have done it online. This guy said it cost him under a grand to build.
