Hi guys, thanks for all the advice you've posted it's going to make life a lot easier for me!

I've been looking to get snakeheads for a while and have just acquired a second tank big enough to house a couple for a couple of years, hopefully my local shop is going to get hold of a couple of either spotted or red snakeheads for me in the next few weeks so will hopefully have some nice pictures in the coming months!

One thing, I currently have a six inch sailfin pleco in what will be my snakehead tank, is this big enough or will i need bigger? Bigger shouldn't be a problem as a shop near me has two foot-long ones going for £15 each so got that covered if need be!

I'm hoping to get baby snakeheads which will give the plec time to grow to a size where he will be able to handle himself!

As i said thanks again for all the advice, hopefully pics will be put up soon!

Niko

Micropeltes?
Micros and redlines are the same fish, I'm pretty sure.
Do you have pics?
Yes, the large one will try to eat the smaller ones.
