Moon -- meaning no offense to your fish/herp keeping abilities, but it is my
understanding that Helbenders are dang near impossible to keep in
captivity -- live food, very cold, clean water, and they get big. Most
public aquariums have trouble with them. Even if you were successful, you'd
be stuck with the problem of what to do when it outgrew the aquarium.
They're a very interesting critter, but ... they're one I think should
probably be left in the wild.
