thnks
Max size easily more than 2feet.
They are too active for goldfish and discus. The goldfish and discus will lose out during feeding to these greedy cats...

U can see adult ones in the river safari.
Heres an example adult i find online.
But, it would take a long time to grow to this size in our fishtanks.
