I have read back the whole post (17 pages), and no where on the post I found the answer to my question.
I'm asking the same question as jlnguyen74 : what's the real minimum tank size for housing 3 micropeltes ?
350 gallons is ok ?

Because I see lot of people housing micropeltes in 100 gallons, what are your experience with that type of tank?
Do the fish outgrow the tank ? Or is it suitable for 5 years ?

lol coulda smiled!-) nice fish! watched some of your vids feeding em mice and fish, good job!

im growing one in a community atm, in the tank in my signiture! not sure yet wiether im going to keep it long term due to the fact ive been offered a 12 inch diplo as a swap for my giant gourami.... better choice im thinking. is there actually any concrete evidence on diplo max size yet?

heres a few pics of mine. of course the other fish will be re accomodated as the micro grows if i dont sell it...

I have learned a lot from this thread as I am still a very new owner of this beauty. Keep it coming guys.

If you guys noticed, my Snakehead's tail is closed when I tried snapping a picture of it. Unlike many of you guys who posted pics of your Snakehead where its tail is opened. Closed and opened may not be the right word but I hope you guys know what I'm talking about. Lol...

Why is that so? This happens only when I get close to the tank. Is it afraid or nervous or something?
