150 Gallon Stocking
I'm getting a 150 gallon (6 foot) soon. I have my ideas as far as stock goes. Just wanted to get some more opinions on them.
Fish that I already have:
3 Jack Dempseys
1 Spotted Raphael Catfish
Fish that I want in addition:
1 Tiger Oscar
1 Albino Tiger Oscar
5 synadontis multipunctatus cats OR 5 clown loaches
1 Lima Shovel Nose (maybe)
1 Columbian Shark (maybe)
1 Other Large Cichlid? Suggest something.
Or come up with your own stock based on the JDs and Spotted Raphael.

The columbian sharks need fw when young then bw when middle age, and finally sw when full grown. I would do he clown loaches, you could do angelfish in there I think.A true aquarist knows what it feels like to step on a sharp piece of gravel
do as I say, not as I do- William
Sandy hook, need lest we forget- steeler58
I think if someone thinks clownfish are called nemos they should banned from keeping sw tank.

I love flowerhorns. Can't believe I forgot about them.
The JDs are complete scaredy cats. Two are about 4-5 inches, the other is 7-8 inches. They all hide about 80% of the time there isn't food in the tank. I just had an oscar that was with the bigger JD commit suicide by jumping out last night. And those two would literally lay on top of each other behind a rock. They're pretty much docile as could be.

Not a clue. The bigger one is a parent of the two smaller ones. So I guess "like father, like son" applies in this case. It's kind of disappointing that they're so docile and hide all the time. But, the younger ones are getting better. By no means do I expect them to become aggressive, ever.
One is a normal JD, the other is a gold JD. The gold one is unique and look just awesome, and the normal color one actually is turning out really nice.
