This very large and intolerant fish you only can keep in a large aquarium together with other fishes that are not too small, because they are eaten.  The aquarium should be set up on the sides and background with rocks and stones.  A sandy substrate is appreciated.

You should give them powerful live food such as small fishes. 

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
