Can you keep any species of peacock bass as pets?

I think they are really pretty.

You can keep peacock bass in captivity, although they are a challenging fish to look after. You'll need a big tank--at least 250 gallons--or a large pond.

Yes, you can keep peacock bass but it must be in a very large aquarium as they can grow to up to 29 inches long and require an aquarium of at least 70 gallons in size. They are considered a gaming fish. They are popular though because they are considered to have unique personalities.

Yes you can keep any species of peacock bass as pets. They are great and they look really good. You will also get many comments from others as well on these.

While it is possible to keep peacock bass in the aquarium, keep in mind that they become very large fish with voracious appetites. You will have to have adequate aquarium space available in order to succesfully house one. They are not suitable for an aquarium with other fish because they will constantly try to eat the other tank mates.

As far as I know all wild fish have to stay in the wild but I am sure if you checked with a fish hatchery you can get some really good answers from them and if all else fails you can go online and do some research on the subject.

They make poor pets as they get quite large (the smallest is almost two feet long) and have very large appetites. They're also quite aggressive.
