paint boxes


The tigerfish (Hydrocynus vittatus) is a large African tetra with an impressive toothy maw. For some reason the giant predatory tetras such as piranhas and vampire tetras are always kind of amusing given what one normally thinks of a as a tetra. I can't help but get the idea that it is the doom neon, even though it's only about as related to neons as it is to pacus and piranhas. Tigerfish swim in schools and are fairly enthusiastic carnivores. They are also reasonably popular game fish as they are angry and difficult to catch, they are also apparently tasty. Some people that are very enthusiastic about predatory fish also keep them as pets as they do not get as large as the Goliath tigerfish, but they are still very large fish and require a specialized set up.
