    This is Rocket, he is a Channa Diplogramma. Justa baby ATM at 6", should hit 2ft and be as fat as a man's forearm soon.
    Love this guy.

    Thanks. Yeah, all snakeheads are banned in every state of the USA unfortunately.
    He is on frozen mussels and frozen silversides ATM, growing pretty well.

    I love snakeheads!! I had one years ago, probably around 2002 sometime I had a buddy getting rid of it. I ended up keeping him for years. He was an awesome fish. If I had to venture a guess he was probably 18-20" and about the diameter of an adult King snake.

    Probably one of the coolest fish I ever kept. I had piranha, a fresh water ray, a needle-nose gar, a small mouth bass, as well as the more common Oscars, Dempseys, terrors, etc...

    I know they don't compare, but I've tried to satisfy my snakehead desires with a pike. Not the same, I know. But, they always seemed similar to me.

    Wow, I'm sold...that's an awesome fish! Yours looks different (prettier, w/ stripes?) from the photos I've seen of "snakehead" fish getting all the bad publicity.
    I guess I can understand the ban here in the U.S. though...it's unfortunate that people just cannot be trusted not to release invasive species. Thanks for
    sharing- I really love how alert he is.
