 Paddlefish

Sawfish
what a monster............ i want one ......<grin>
this isnt really a aquarium species..apart from maybe a huge public one....and the chances of you the hobbiest getting one is vertually nil..... and with that the Saw fish isnt really a freshwater fish.....it lives and breeds in salty water...but has been found over 400km inland.. it is also a close realtive of the shark...
