Just to highlight once again. It is illegal to Sell or Buy a PNT now.
However if you had bought one before the ban, you are allowed to keep it.
The PNT you bought back then should now be around 8-10 inches depending on growth rate and size of housing.

1) This is dependent on the PNT's personality. Some are known to be killers and nippers but from my experience, they only attack injured or dying fishes or really slow fishes (Didn't face problems when housed with a Gulper cat though)

In my case, I had more problems of my fish injuring my PNT than the other way.

2) No. PNTs can grow to a shell length of about 70cm. You will sooner or later need a pond.

Hi Julian actually you can catch pnt from some of the pond in spore due to some owner releasing it.............

My son fish one out abot 3/4kg damn big and I caught one about plam size so you might want to try your luck and check whether any of the pond there's pnt by throwing in some bread and see.

Just so you guys know, removing or releasing "wildlife" in public ponds/reservoirs/lakes are also illegal.

Maybe you should spend some time reading (Articles, Resources & FAQs under the topic of PNTShrine)

It is illegal to buy/sell any pnt irregardless of the size now.

Catching of any wildlife from the wild, be it local or foreign species is also illegal.
