I have just bought 10 snakeheads from a pal. They are the smaller variety and I have them in a 150 gal. Before this I haven't bought a fish in over a year. I have a 6'x2'x18" that has a few endlers and hundreds of shrimp, and 2 x 60 litres with just shrimp. I recently had a change round with my tanks in the garage but I'm not happy with it. I will change it again during the winter months

They are Channa Harcourtbutleri, only reach about 6 to 7 inches, mouth brooders, very quick growers though.

Just done a little search for more info, you will enjoy them Den.
Will you keep them all in one tank?

I probably will keep them all together they have plenty of space. I want to get some floating plants established before they get to adults. I also want a mass of quick growing bottom plants, probably some Hygrophila.
