more than likely they get way too big for normal aquaria (+750 gallons) and they are probably carnivores just assuming things here though.

Foster & Smith sells a Red Tail barracuda and they recommend a min. tank size of 70 gallons... the Sabre Tooth could be way different... just guessing.

LOL,
A sabre tooth Payara. I have a pic of one that's 80 pounds. Very cool fish, but not for an aquarium. They are a sports fish...from the Rio Xingu (and other areas). Shedd Aquarium has some here in Chicago. They said all the big ones die in transport. They had 4 that were about 9". (in a 4,000 gallon tank)
