I recommend something smaller. There are many similar looking fish that come in more "manageable" sizes than a 2' monster that will need at least 300 gallons of water.

Look at istlanums, grammodes, or octofasciatus (Jack Dempseys) on that same site. All those fish are of medium size (8"-10" or so), look beautiful (very much like an umbee), and act in an outgoing manner just as do umbees.

Just my two cents!

istlanums are reffered to many as the mini Umbee.

If you have a big enough tank go for the umbee.......... if not i would suggest istlanum. they r called mini umbee for a reason
