    Question Predatory Community Tank?


    0 Not allowed!
    I am looking to buy a 150 gal. fish tank soo and I would like to set it up with freshwater predatory fish. I definetly want an arowana, and a Black Ghost Knife. What other kind of predatory fish could I get? I was wondering if I could get an Spotted African Leaf Fish, or something. The more colorful the better. Thanks

    The Black Ghost Knife and Leaf fish are fine choices...but the Arowana is a very bad option. Not only will it grow rapidly and eat both of your other fish it will grossly outgrow the tank. Arowanas grow to 3ft+ in the home aquarium, reaching upwards of 5ft in the wild...they are not suited for anything outside of several hundred gallon sized tanks or indoor heated ponds.

    Agreed,arowanas are just to large and like to jump.The others would be fine,how about a pike characin of some kind?Or a marble goby or water cow?Maybe a medium sized catfish or two,such as the african ornate catfish(chrysichthys ornatus)or a dwarf giraffe catfish(parauchenoglanis).Not to mention the pimolodeus group and the horabagrus.(eclipse catfish)

    That's kind of sad. I really like Arowannas, but I understand your point. What other inhabitants can I through in there. I will also have 1 pleco. I don't know which one, but it is going to be a big one.

    You could get a tire track eel or a ornate bichir. Ornates are more colorful than senegal bichirs.
    The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

    One 75 gallon: Senegal Bichir, a Reed Fish, 1 Fire Eel and a Rio Negro Pleco

    80 gallon: 2 female Hornet Cichlids and a Unknown Cichlid
