Very nice lent man. Best of luck getting him to live with his "buddy"
I'm sure if it doesn't go well, somebody would gladly buy one like this off you.
I am getting to that point.....My tank is going to make netting the pike nearly impossble.....I need to remove hundreds of lbs of rock to stop him from vanishing.

Sounds like a PITA. If he comes out to eat, something I've had luck with is leaving the big net in the tank for like a day so the fish are used to it, then feed them, and just be quick with net when he goes to eat

I have a 180 as well and only catch fish while doing a water change. Drop the water down to 12" or less and it becomes much easier to catch a fish

Use 2 nets

Problem is the rock structure in the tank. Moving the rocks in and out is dangerous to my tank and with the structure in place the pike hides....I know how to catch fish! 300 llbs worth of rocks!

You get the idea....Mata Mata turtle needs the structure. It will shrink as the turtle grows. I cleaned up the heater mess today with a new Titanium model with a shield to protect everyone.IMG_1105.JPG FTS 2.jpg
