I've kinda been thinking I might like a few of these guys to fit into that little "fish with big teeth" niche we all have somewhere in our fish-keeping souls .... anything special I should know besides "not suitable for the community tank" ???

Also, as far as I know, they're not found as far north as I am (Gainesville area), can anybody recommend any specific places where I could snag 'em?
