    aren't these the fish that wreaked havoc up north somewhere?

    and if you're in the US i think it's illegal to have them... im guessing you live somwhere else?

    lol sorry i have no idea how to answer your question though. someone will come around to you

    all i do know is those fish can get big and when they do, they will start banging against your aquarium walls (if that's where you keep em) and break it. And they can live out of water for like 3 days

    you probably knew that though so i'll let someone else answer your question : P

    It is illegal to keep snakeheads as pets in all states of the USA and other countries as they have become an invasive species due to irresponsible owners releasing them into the wild when they could/would no longer take care of them.

    With that said, unless your rearing dwarf snakeheads, like channa gachua, you will need a tank bigger than you can probably handle. At 2-3' in length, you're going to need 500-1000 usg. for just one.

    They're also known to break aquarium glass.

    Good luck!

    BTW - Welcome to the forum!

    Still legal in Canada. I kept some many years ago. Keep them well fed and they won't eat eachother. Not many tankmates for snakeheads except other snakeheads.

    Owning and encouraging the owning of snakeheads is irresponisble fishkeeping IMO.

    Certain fish should not be in the trade; snakeheads and RTC come to mind immediately

    Whats wrong with snakeheads? They cannot be invasive to Canada since they could never survive the winters. The only illegal animals I can think of here are endangered, native or venomous.
