Relevant Information:

Aquarium care: Would need a large tank as they grow big and are territorial. Provide plenty of caves and also hiding places that will break up the line of site if keeping more than one individual. Diet: As with all of this genera they are carnivores and would need to be fed on frozen foods such as Artemia, mosquito larvae, mysis and shrimp. They can also be fed pellet and tablet foods plus some vegetable matter to vary the diet.
