What a beauty...Not a black mask though, at least I don't think. They are great fish, I have had my black mask elong for 2 days now and I am loving him.

Yeah, so is mine.
I got a 5" black mask, popped him in his tank, realized I wanted the tank on the other side of the room, so I drained out 50% of the water and unplugged everything.

(I had just dropped in a feeder prior to this... bear in mind the elong had been in the tank for mere minutes)

So there the elong is in the tank half full of water, no light on in the tank, and being sloshed around as we move the tank across the room and BAM!
He bites the feeder in half.

This guy is not skittish or afraid of anything.
Attacks food the second it hits the water now.

Very entertaining fish.

He is about 4", I got him from mikeskillerfish here in Denver. This fish was so scared at first, but when I made his tank more comfortable with hiding places, plants, and current, he completely changed. Oh yeah, whitting fillets for all my piranha, nightcrawlers once a week, and feeders sparingly has seemed to promote good growth.
