    maybe in a public aquarium they get huge.
    A true aquarist knows what it feels like to step on a sharp piece of gravel
    do as I say, not as I do- William
    I think if someone thinks clownfish are called nemos they should banned from keeping sw tank.

    it is a very, very big, pelagic deepwater fish with a poorly understood life history and requirements.
    Its size alone would make things extremely difficult. the fact that it is pelagic and from deeper water may mean that a hypothetical captive opah will need a specialized enclosure (pelagic species are really bad at dealing with tank walls/obstacles because they are used to open space).

    As far as I am aware of opah have never been kept in captivity, probably never will be and certainly not by private aquarists.
