Hands down, a black p will get rid of a snakehead no problem. If you starve both of them in a tank, the black p will just tear the snakehead up slowly but surely. The snakehead will try to jump out of the tank.
I'm with Bderick67 on this, however, if were are assuming adults and as you propose "both have been starved" I think you are deluding yourself. It would tear a large hungry snakehead up slowly but surely! Your having a laugh. Why would a large hungry snakehead want to jump out of a tank there was food in? i.e. a fish? Yes, the black P has excellent dentition but so has the snakehead, and it also has a bigger mouth and greater power within it's arsenal. And it would not tear it up slowly but surely either - it would more than likely simply bite it in half, end of story. And I'm not just talking about C.micropeltes here, include C.marulia, C.striata, C.argus and very probably C.aurantimaculata (if it were a very mature/large specimen).

They would form an alliance and rip the arms off their owner for starving them. The micro would then jump out walk down the street eating dogs and scaring people untill it found a new pond.

If anybody wants to try it i'm all for it...but they have to be full grown hell even at 4" my arrowhead puffer can kill 'em both so they have to be full or at least adults of the same size..
