Hi every one I'm looking for all and any information on breeding Tigerfish in captivity, I am putting together a breeding program for restocking local Zimbabwean waters. Please if you have any information I would hugely appreciate it, and you may have helped save the species.

How old will a Tiger fish weighing around 6 kg be? The Kariba Zimbabwe species.

    How long have you had it? Did you get it from a pet store or from a previous owner? I don't think there's any sure way to tell how old it is. In the wild they can get to be around 28 kg, but in captivity they don't usually get that big because of environment constraints.

This page states that they need a 1,000 gallon aquarium. What are the dimensions of this aquarium?

    They can be different dimensions but run about 120 inches wide, 50 inches deep and 40 inches accross --- there are various sizes though.
