Size
Goliat African Tiger Fish are the largest species of African tiger fish. The average adult specimen will be two to three feet long and approximately 25 pounds. The current world record is 99 pounds, three ounces and was caught in 1987 by Daniel Neuville. In an aquarium, it is exceptionally rare to see a specimen larger than two feet. These things have attained huge popularity thanks to their inclusion in an episode of River Monsters with Jeremy Wade, you find them in the huge Congo River and  tributaries they are very difficult to catch they are very powerful, their jaws are armed with huge teeth almost as big as the ones of the Great White Shark.
