This is Haku.
Haku is an ornate bichir.
At fifteen inches, he is the biggest fish in the tank.
And every inch of it is grouchy.
He has tank mates,
two smaller bichirs,
and two fish.
He eats anyone who fits in his mouth.
And tries biting the tails off the rest.
He guards his cave fiercely.
Snapping at those who come near.
Everyone hides from him.
And he hides from me.
So the tank looks empty,
most of the time.
He's worth hundreds of dollars.
But he's not for sale.
He's just lucky I love him.
