Thats why I said depending on where you live. And yes, many fish don't belong in the aquarium but you said you want one big fish. If I were you, I would look around craigslist and see you can find any unwanted giants (arowanas, pacus) and give them a nice home to live in.

Hope the living room is on ground floor, That's a lot of weight. 1,000 X 8 lbs per gallon of water.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Weight being discussed is substantial and does not include substrate or decor such as Rock.
In my neck of the woods ,Landlords faint at the mention of tanks much larger than 55 gal in upstairs apartments/houses.
I hope to see this impressive tank once you get it set up and am quite jealous.
