Came across this article today...

Anyone care to guess at how big a tank we'd need?

Not even sure an olympic pool would cut it. I fish for these guys here in Perth every now & again. The ones I catch are only about 24-30" long though. These things are true speedsters capable of emtying 500yrds of 20lb line off a reel in around 60seconds. One flick of it's tail & it would smash into the other end of a 50m pool.

That is one of the fish the Responsible Fish keeping Initiative is asking hobbyist not to try to keep in home aquaria and stores not to sell. Check it out.
