I have a black mask. They get a foot long max. And are as easy as other ps to care for.
are they slow growers? how long does it take to reach 12 in.? what are you feeding it?

I've had mine for two months, and he's grown about an inch and three quarters. He only has been fed shrimp. I don't know how long it takes an elong to get full grown.

They must have there own tank will kill anything else in it with them. I just posted a new pic of my elong in the pics and video forum

12" is max. size for the wild. you dont see many in home aquariums over 8" in fact i have yet to ever see a grown out elong more than 8".very nice fish, skittish around humans but absolutely a fish killer.
i loved mine while i had him.

i recently became interested in them and thinking about getting one. anyone know how big they get and what size tank do i need? are they tough to raise?
post pics please.
as far as pics go instead of waiting go to the pics and vids section and type in elongatus in the search bar.

Elongs tend to be a more agressive piranha although u could get one that is a p*ssy. Mine is very active and agressive

my elong isnt skidish at all. Definately a fish killer although mine has been living with 2 catfish for 2 months. He has bitten them twice but theve since healed up

So far I see absolutely no Elong pics...
*way to rant a thread, me!*

**I'll be getting an Elong shortly before or after Christmas. If the $$$ is right.
