    I live in a tropical country, and snakeheads are legal here, but since they're banned in the U.S. I don't know where else to buy. So I want to buy a fish which is similar to your stereotypical snakead - breathes air, voracious appetite, quick breeder e.t.c. I'd like a fish with those characterists. As well as those above, I'd like the fish to:

    -Be decently priced.
    -Have sharp teeth.
    -Be aggressive
    -Grow to about 2 feet long or more.

    Any fish come to mind?

    One that survives in a tropical climate. It gets quite hot here. I like the Bowfin, but not the fish I'm looking for.

    Bowfin is going to be the closest thing to a snakehead you are gonna get.
