how aggresive are they and how big do thay get
not aggressive at all... the biggest I've seen is a little over 14" but they should get bigger than that with age.
really ok what do thay eat
they're just like any other predatory fish. they eat fish. lol
but in the aquarium you can feed anything from pellets to worms to shrimp, etc.
could one go into a 120 48'' 24'' 24'' with tankmates
just bought an african pike and he immediatly made friends with my yellow tail barracuda and follows him throughout the whole tank which is cool to watch. the pike is really fast and will chase feeders through the tank which is also awsome to watch. maybe keep him with other characins because it seems that they like them (my barracuda). i would definatly recommend this fish becuase they're fun to watch
you have to be careful of anything that looks similar.i put a gar in and my pike started opening and closing his mouth pretty fast like he was pi***d off or excited,then,bang,he had the gar in his mouth.luckily he dropped it,i put the net in and caught the gar and put him in my spare tank.be careful what you put in with the pike.ive only had mine for 2 weeks so im no expert.
glad people are talking about this fish, fun to watch hunt, tempermental will leave long gashes in the side of fish if they don't like them, mine attacks both of my pbass and has left a couple of scars on them. will eat frozen and live foods such as shrimp, worms, silversides, and feeders mine will not take pellets or flake food but have heard of people getting them on pellets. WATCH YOUR GAR BECAUSE ONE DAY THEY MAY NOT GET ALONG!!:naughty: :cry:
Like Rixy said, try not to mix them with any fish that look similar to them like arowanas and fish like that...my pike attacked my jardini during the first two minutes it was in the tank....had to take out the pike and later the jar died of its injuries...they sport some wicked teeth...just my .02 Gl...
wow hope my needlenose gars will live if i get one what sounds right to pay for one theres one on aquabid.com for like $40
