Very aggressive and predatory fish that you should keep as a pair.  You should keep them together with fishes that are equal large.  The aquarium should be set up with driftwood, roots and stones that form caves and hiding places. 

You should give them powerful live food such as small fishes, insects and their larvae, shrimp and mussel.  Frozen and dry food are accepted as well.

About breeding in the aquarium not much is known.  A good matching couple is necessary.
