Yes. A Arowana would do good both consider tank size and company. You can find info about arowanas in our article archive. they have their own category.

I would get a south american Arowana considering that the rest of your fish is from the same area. They are also among the easier aros to care for. I would stay away from asian aros since they are endangered.

The fish you allready have likely make good company (depends on their present size) or do you mean that you want more fish?

myslomma ??

Sounds like it going to be a nice tank. Make sure to keep the water quality up and feed high quality food as some of those fish are somewhat sensitive.

do you meand Mylossoma? The common silver dollar belong to Metynnis. And all species are found in the wild.

You can find more info about most of the species on this site. redbelly pacu has an article in the articles archive and so those aros and datnoids. you can also find datnoid info under d in the species archive (tropical fish species in the menu)

Hard to say anything about plecos with out knowing which pleco species you are thinking about ;-)
