"I've had my Hydrolycus Armatus for close to a year now and deal with all 4 payara species on a daily baisis. The 'sudden death' of payara in aquaria ONLY applies to the Scomb. species. Most of the information posted above is correct though. All 4 of the payara species can be trained onto dead/frozen foods (such as fresh market fish fillets or frozen silversides), but they are quite stubborn to train, so the use of teacher fish may be a good idea to speed up the process. My Hydrolycus Armatus was 4' at purchase, and is now about a foot. They do require very large tanks with lots of curret and prestine water quality, anything less and they will perrish. They are quite rare (Scombs and Tats are often mislabeld as Armatus so do your research first) as mentioned above, so if you do find one, expect to pay minimum $100."

20 + 4 = ?
