They look pretty good sized -- what size are they now and how big do they get?
Thanks Brian. At least they don't seem to have much in the way of teeth so I just might do that - NOT!
They are pretty much full grown, I think. The male is about 9", the female about 7". There is another pair in this tank, male about 9-10" female is closer to 9". Some references state maximum size at 10" although others say less (8.5").
