Animal Scene - - FISH IN YOUR TANK -

The H. ai­mara is a leg­end in its own right. How­ever, this is not for your av­er­age aquar­ist, but for the ad­vanced fish col­lec­tor. It is rare and not cheap, and may cost you an arm and a leg if ever you find one. To be able to en­joy it, one should have the means and com­mit­ment to pro­vide a huge tank with ad­e­quate fil­tra­tion sys­tem. Big fish can de­stroy things and cre­ate havoc in­side the aquar­ium. They can even break the glass. So for H. ai­mara keep­ers, their tanks must be built tough and all po­ten­tial prob­lems iden­ti­fied and ad­dressed be­fore even pur­chas­ing an H. ai­mara. Keep­ing an H. ai­mara re­quires a dif­fer­ent level of re­spon­si­bil­ity. The fishkeeper will have to be com­mit­ted to its spe­cial needs. If these needs are met, then the H ai­mara will pro­vide a dif­fer­ent fish ex­pe­ri­ence al­to­gether―an ex­pe­ri­ence only the much-feared “An­ju­mara” can pro­vide.
