My predatory tank

Post by blondmyth » Sat Dec 05, 2015 1:34 pm

An Asian Aro, an Indonesian datnoid, an ornate bichir and a clown loach. Hoping to add a Goliath tiger soon if I can find one that's about 7 inch minimum. Tank is a 4 by 1.5 by 1.5

PLEASE DON'T ADD ANY MORE FISH!!! You still don't have nearly a large enough tank to house your monster mbu! How is that poor arrowana supposed to turn around when it grows larger than the width of that tank?

Are you F-ing crazy??? Here is your Goliath tiger:

This isn't funny. If you keep those fish in the tank you will severely stunt their growth and they will die in a couple years.

Yes, I'm talking about yours. I'm not trying to be mean, but in order for your fish to be even humanely housed they would need a tank of at least 700 gallons.

I didn't bother to look. You sound like a drug addict defending themselves, by saying, "Look at that other guy, he uses WAY more drugs than me, see I'm not an addict..."

I have to agree with Pufferpunk. Just because some idiot thinks it's a good idea to keep 15 huge fish in a 500 gallon tank doesn't mean that it's alright to keep 5 huge fish in a 60 gallon.
