    He will go back to the store when he starts to outgrow the tank, unless I step to a 250+ in a year, just wanted a bit of color in my tank... Hes already eating frozen food... No name yet though..

    Thats a cool looking snapper.
    Why not go ahead and set up a 380 in the wall for him.That way you dont have to trade him he gets bigger.

    great fish. I have seen them at my LFS before that were about 6 inches. be careful with him though, he will be eating ALL the fish in your tank when he gets to be about a foot long. you have about 2 years before he will be a thread though

    Have you ever seen the plumbing that goes into a typical tank that size? My buddies dad had one about that size and it took up a whole room behind it thats about what he had invested in his and he got frustrated with it and took it down and sold the whole thing plumbing and all for 5k!

    On another note whats the point of digging up 3month old threads?
