    Top 2 ways to tell if your aquarium fish are too big!!!!

    #2 your fish jumps out of the tank in an attemt to remove your fingers, because they look tastier than the shrimp your feeding him...






    And the #1 reason you know when your fish are to big.....







    You have a hard time getting them back in the tank do to how heavy and strong they are!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    this here would be what the sumbitch looks like( but not him), he's about 26" long but after picking him up off the floor I'd have to say he weighed in at around 4 lbs and about 3 1/2" wide and about 28" long, water behind glass is decepive... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gifHe dosent have teeth that I know of but instead has a serated jaw, that I want no part of... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif [​IMG]

    I used to have a nurse shark in a 100 gallon marine aquarium, and he ate shrimp, scallups, squid, whatever... Alot better than us. Got too big and I sold him to an aquarium shop.

    i work at a feed store that sells fish. not nearly as big as fumes fish though. the biggest ones we have are about 8" long but they still scare the heck out of you when they jump out of the water for the blood worms.
