Goslinia platynema would never win a fish beauty contest. Apart from the peculiar appearance it has a dull coloration being grayish to black dorsally, fading to a dirty white ventrally. These factors would not stop a number of dedicated hobbyists but its sheer size would. It will reach a final size of over 80 cm and weight more than 5 Kg, which call for a monster tank. Thus, although appreciated as food locally, it is very rarely seen in the aquarium hobby.
