yep indo tarpons : ) mine is a dumb one from what i heard...it swims against the glass all day xD but it eats floating freeze dried shrimp... i didnt really acclimate it when i first got it.... and believe it or not, tarpon r quite nonaggressive fish.... they always get scales scratched up if u have something like a perch in the tank...

i asked a friend that has a courier service, he says he's not familiar with sending live specimens because they are more on documents but he promised to ask around how it would go. do you know how should i prepare the fish for transportation if ever its gonna na be possible? like for example, the packaging and the oxygen of the fish?

haha ... well... depends on ur definition of game fish xD a piraiba that i own would be consider a game fish in the amazon .... pretty sure a bichir would be a game fish for some locals in africa o_O ? cichla pinima as game fish in some part of the world??? haha .... dunno.... but the actual game fish that im thinking of getting is trevally , swordspine snook, grouper, mangrove jack( which i wont bother to try since they r too meanxD ) .... im workin on gettin some snooks , and hopefully some trevally from ya ; ) the grouper, ehh, when i have money xD
