Practically all local reservoirs have them, they can grow and breed fast but they face competition for food and territory with the increasing numbers of peacock basses.

I don't think I've heard tomans making a popping sound aside from striking something on the water surface. Many fishes can croak but popping...? 0.o

I caught a baby Giant Snakehead once at bukit batok nature park. Didnt know it was giant snakehead baby at that time. When I brought it home, it ate nearly all the fishes in my aquarium :mad: I put it in another tank and when it grew black, i released it.

i believe it was made because of the snakehead shutting its mouth. the bones around the mouth are quite hard so when they close their mouth hard that popping sound is heard

Possible. The arapaima makes a popping noise when it surfaces for breath

I think Bottletree has some Tomans. I saw some people caught 1 or 2 and some patin. Bottletree also has Pacu and Redtail catfish to be caught on rod+reel ( Release only )
