Hey guys!
I have finally persuaded my parents to get an aquarium! A friend of my dad gave us the aquarium, so I can’t buy something else etc
I am in love with the Rainbow snakeheads! I do not mind having a single specimen in my tank. The dimensions are 61*41*58 cm (length*width*height)
Could it be possible?

Thanks for your answer!
I am probably making myself look like a newbie (I am actually) but no tankmates right?

Definitely no other snakeheads in such a small area. Maybe a couple of small/mid sized peaceful fish, nothing bigger than 2 inches, like danios. You'll need to watch the temperature ranges. Rainbow snakeheads are subtropical. 18 - 24°c, so check the temperate section of your local fish shop.

61*41*58 cm. I think that it is to small for a fish that gets around 10-15cm.
sites recommend at least 100cm and most even recommend 120cm tanks

I know, I’ve carried out quite some research, however I was searching “rainbow snakehead” in youtube and a guy kept 4 of these in a 90 gallon, which had the exact same dimenions with my tank, except for the height. I asked him whether they were doing well and he said that they were not aggressive towards the other ones, and they were doing well
