I seized the moment in getting 3.2 Pipa pipa. These are HUGE adults, even the two females have birth scares on their backs. This group is in a 65 gallon (cube or breeder) tank , PH 6.5 , 80F , lots of anubias and a couple of drift wood. This particular tank is tall and a powerful ehiem canister filter to move alot of water. I have an empty 125 gallon so I most likely will get another 3.2 and eventually combine the two groups into the 125 gallon tank. IMO , Pipa pipa look the best in a amzonia biotope. Providing a large enough tank , most likely you'll observe alot of natural behaviors. These def. meets one's need for one of the weirder and more bizarre herp.
