While not a very active fish, for the fish keeper looking for something "unique," the Lung Fish will most assuredly fit the bill! The lung fish is a stout fish which has been known to live in excess of 15 years, and is very adaptable to a variety of aquarium conditions. One of the important things with this fish is to realize that it is going to be several feet long when full grown, and at adult size it will need a six foot long aquarium at the minimum.
