Hey all, I have been doing some research on the various Wolf fish like hoplias aimara being my favorite. And I was just curious if anyone on here has kept them or has them currently. I was close to getting a Red HiFin wolf fish but decided it was going to be a little small for a 125 since they only grow a max of 10 inches and at the store the ones they had were already 8 inches. Anyway just a curious question. But if you do have them can you post pics it would be much appreciated.

http://www.aquatic-experts.com/Hoplias_aimara.html

that is a link to some info and one pic.

http://www.google.com/m/search?q=Hoplias+aimara+pics&site=images&ei=sJiJTMipFIb4qwOKj8-EAw&ved=0CA8QsAQwAA

that is a link to some various pics.

I have been looking for one for a little over a month. I have some of my lfs asking there distribators for them aswell. I also have some friends trying to help me get my hands on one.

The info I know is that they get Big probably over 4 feet. Obviously with a great deal of time. They have huge teeth. And apprently they are on of the wrold most agressive freashwater fish. Maybe even more so then the snakehead. I'm not sure I don't own niether.

The price isn't cheap for these hard to get fish. The one I'm truley after is the one in the links. The Hoplias aimara.

Anyway I was curious if anyone here dealt with any wolves. I will probably own a couple different kinds. But if I could have the pleasure to own the Big guy well I would be one cloud 9.

So if anyone on here has any kind of wolf post some pics I would love to see. I frequent YouTube just to see these monsters.

I would want a small juvie so I can grow it out. In the end it would be in the garge when it's finished. I have a few people offering to build me tanks. One guy wants to build a huge one that connects to the outside of my house. So I would more then accomodate the fish. But if I got a small one then he can go in a 55 then a 100 then a 200 then eventually end up in some huge tank lol.

Does that sound like it's reasonable? I don't want to make the fish uncomfortable

sweet that would be cool. You would probably have better luck considering your location. There is one shop up here that has two but they are displays only. Being new to the hobby I figured it was an " I don't know you" thing. So I asked everyone I knew to ask them for me ( to sell it ) and they weren't budging lol. Not for sale they said :(.

But if you could inquire that would be great and appreciated.

This board has been very helpful and welcoming
by the way great job admins and mods.
