Most of the species will quickly empty a general communitytank with smaller fish.
In general, most species are probably best kept alone.Next
This enables widespread dispersal of a highly fecund population of an invasive species with significant impacts at all trophic levels.
Often local markets are stocked anyday of the year with large amounts of Snakeheads.Next
There may be cultural ramifications, but it is more likely that there would economic and recreational losses of affected communities.
Snakeheads are known to migrate over short distances over land to find other waterbassins, using the ability to breath air. Breeding occurs through most of the year and can vary slightly depending on location. When placed in direct sunlight, however, they desiccate and perish in minutes to several hours.Next

The potential to eradicate or control C.Next
Eggs hatch within 54 hours at 16°C to 26°C and within 30 hours at 28°C to 33°C.
Parents defend their young with force. Their communication with conspecifics their hunting skills and breeding behaviour is fascinating. Department of the Interior, Geological Survey No.
They have long been an important part of capture fisheries and, in recent decades, some species C.
Unlike mammals, they lack a diaphragm and use water to exchange old air with fresh air each time they take a breath. It is entirely absent from Indonesia and Malaysia and may have been replaced by C.Next
Thus a dedicated aquarium is required for keeping snakeheads.
