Will the fish you get look like the fish in our pictures? No!
This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it
grows and matures.
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship. Not so
small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big
that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the
ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!

Comments African Tiger Fish are not recommended as aquarium
fish except in very large public aquariums.
These fish are relatives of the Piranha but
grow to be much larger than Piranhas. Click
here for more
information about Piranhas.
Tiger Fish is a young specimen that
was about 5" long when this picture
was taken, and with good care it
could grow to be 30" long.
Appropriate Home Eventually
a very large aquarium with an
exterior power filter with a BIO-Wheel,
and a maximum of 1/4-inch of

kept very few African Tiger Fish in our aquariums,
and we have kept those fish for only a few weeks,
until they were acclimated and ready to be shipped
to the customers, who ordered them. So we don't
have much first hand information about compatible
tank mates. The African Tiger Fish, shown
in the video at the top of this page, lives
in a very large aquarium with several Bichirs
and some Synodontis Catfish. Click

of compatible fish.

Hello, I was looking
at your site when I
saw the picture of the
African Tiger Fish and
noticed that you didn't
have much info on them.
I have had one for about
a year now that I bought
at the local pet store.
The care of these fish
is very easy. They will
eat anything that fits
into the jaws but can
in thier food if hunting
for it is too easy.
They tend to like fish
that can swim very quickly
and will make cathing
them a challenge.
Mine lives in a 55 gallon
tank with an African
Butterfly Fish and I
have never had a problem
with them not getting
along. I have a Fluval
440 filter and an under
gravel system with two
power heads to keep
the tank clean and a
pleco to keep the algea
to a minum.
I keep the tank at 80
degrees and add a little
aquarium salt when I
add water to the tank.
I have found that African
Tiger Fish are excelent
in an aquarium and are
compatable with fish
to large for it to eat.
I hope this has help
to inform you a little
better about these beautiful
Misty and thank you very much for the information
about your African Tiger Fish. So maybe it's a better aquarium fish than we thought it was, but ... how big will it grow?
