    Dear god. I had something like these in my old tank, which is the reason I moved to the new one. They were horrible. Mine were much smaller and would only eat snails and crabs -- but had the same kind of face. Things were horrible.

Before buying a filter, a heater, or any other lifeless piece of equipment, it may be of some use to do a little research, just so you buy the right one. However, when buying livestock, that is fish and invertebrates, you need to research thoroughly before you buy. This is essential in order to avoid unnecessary suffering and death in your aquarium. Here's what you need to know before buying a new fish or invertebrate.

The first thing you need to know are the water requirements for the animal in question. You need to be absolutely sure that it is either suitable for the water your current fish are swimming around in or, if possible, that you can provide water with the parameters it needs in a new aquarium. This includes the Ph, hardness, temperature, oxygen levels, and salinity. The water parameters must be suitable for ALL of the fish housed in any single aquarium. An average will not always work, especially for particular and demanding species.

Size is something else you may with to devote some attention to. If your aquarium is a small 10 gallon tank, it would be foolish to think you could keep something that grows large, like many catfish species or a pleco in there without having to give it away when it gets too big.
