It is the same fish. :)

This fish was caught in Nicuaragua in October/07 by Spencer Jack and was being housed in Florida until 2 weeks ago. I have some more pics to take off the camera and process, but he was not particularly happy and was not cooperating with me. He's going into a 400 gallon tank after the show is over tomorrow where I'll have more opportunities to shoot him. :thumb:

That is a monster fish! :eek: But then you say he's only 18 inches, so this monster still has some more to grow yet! Wicked fish. 8)

He is a beast, isn't he? :lol: And no, hes not done growing either! I was told that his nuchal hump was 3 times bigger a month ago, but he's consumed most of it during his fasting/shipping. He should have it back in a few months. I was told he was quite spectacular when he came out of the canal he was in. He weighed almost 12 pounds when he was caught.

I would take him in a heartbeat if I could, but he's going to be in Spencer's office. I couldn't figure out a way to reference his size in the pic. No one would put their hand in the tank, lol. I did say he's 18 inches but I didn't mention that he's also 4 inches thick. :lol:
