Forgive me on the dirty glass....I was spilling water all down the sides.

He has got to be 10 to 11 inches. He's huge. I am thinking he was the mystery of my missing guppies. He tends to swallow things such as big balls of beef heart and whatever might be falling into the tank.

Thanks for the ID...I will have to read up on him. He was in a 50 gallon when the girl gave him to me....now he is in my 140

I would agree that he is the culprit. Nice fish though. :) Oh and no worries on the glass...mine looked pretty rugged before i cleaned them a couple weeks ago
