I personally love barra. Have kept them many years ago and they have personality.All though a 5 ft tank would not be big enough if you are going to grow him to a decent size.I got mine at about 3cm and they would smash feeders about half their size.Was cool watching them stalk their prey.Have never kept a jack or toga so cant comment on them but if you stick around here you will get all the info you need.welcome to the forum.

Cheers Leigh
