Get back on the meds....

They are impressive because they impale fish on their "sabers". In the wild, that includes.... piranha!

All my sp. of this type grew to the 5" mark rather quickly and then slowed way down. As Ace said, they are impressive outwardly with the formidable fangs but not an agressive fish persay. They can be on the skittish side and somewhat withdrawing. Also, I have only heard of a few to be lucky enough to ween them off of feeders. That with their big appetite can make for an expensive fish. But I enjoyed keeping them and because they aren't an "agressive" fish, you can house them with anything that won't fit in their mouth.

this is funny, cause i was gonna post one like this cause my lfs, not my work was suposed to get me a barracuda, but the tankmates had ick, so he didnt get one, but he said he could get my two of these "vampire tetras" that are now 8" long for $30/ea, but i knew nothing about them.
I looked them up online and found out a good deal of info on them. but yea they do grow big and the nest says fast. I may get one just to see how they are.
