Finally have a bigger tank! Help me stock it
Just picked up a 90 gallon off of craigslist, which for those playing the home game is 48"x18"x24". A 4ft tank is the widest I can fit in the space I have an a 90g is the most area you can get in the 4ft size, which is why I've been looking so hard for one over the much more common 75g. Anyway, now that I finally have a tank thats 18" deep I can actually get a BIG fish, what would you all do with it? Im strongly considering an Oscar tank or a pair of GT's, but am open to ideas. Only rule is your suggestion must require a large tank, I've been there done that on all the small stuff"At some point you aren't making the animal more dead...You are just making a bigger mess." - Demjor19

I would make it a jack dempsey or a severum tank.When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

Well with a tank that big maybe you can look into brackish? Monos, scats, archers, puffers, gobies.... All good looking fish
Or you can do a large scale schooling fish. Maybe something like a school of silver dollars, a school of congo tetras, and a pair of fire mouths. Not sure how well that works stock wise. But it seems like it wouldnt be an issue from my limited knowledge. The plain sds would compliment the firemouths and congos super nicelyKING OF THE GOLD BARBS RAWR!!!!
I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
gotta love them bunnies!

I absolutely adore my severums, if I had to downscale from my 120g to a 4-foot they'd be the ones I kept.
Here's one of mine. He's about 5 inches. I think a breeding pair of severums, or just a nice group of 3ish (as IME they are pretty social and get on well with each other) and maybe a group of brochis cories, hoplo catfish or a few bristlenoses would be awesome in your 90g.
I do adore my red severums, but I would LOVELOVELOVE Rotkeils. Can't get them here unfortunately.
