Greedy, predatory fish that is much too large for the aquarium in our living room.  It is not wise to buy them.  They only can be kept in a public aquarium in a zoo together with other very large fishes.

You should give them live food such as fish and shrimp.

About breeding in the aquarium nothing is known.
