Hydrocynus forskahlii is very unique among the African tiger fishes in that it is probably the only one that is actually suitable to be kept in an aquarium, which is a very good thing as they are one of the most readily available species as well. They are truly a dwarf species, at least when compared to the monsters that the other four species can become. These fish can be kept for life in a tank that is as small as a 180, though they'd probably be happier with the extra room to swim in a 240. Forskahlii are also a very attractive and colorful species, generally having the same color patterns as avittatus. These fish also tend to have fairly dramatic teeth for their size.
