and you can always split the tank go with cichlid and community with s 150 to 50 gallon ratio or a 100 100 ratio.

also Im not sure how everyone else feels about this but you can put a arowana and a stingray in the same tank. Both would never come close to contact since the arowana is a top swimmer and the stingray is a bottom dweller.
I seriously agree with that. I would love to have both of those. A good rule of thumb is 2 pounds per gallon for substrate. If you do get a stingray I suggest sand so it is softer on the underside. I wan't that tank really bad. Hahahaha when I was a kid I wanted a under ground pool and to fill it with fish and stuff and swim with them. Good luck and keep us posted.

If it was mine it would become a giant paludarium for the guys in my avatar. I intend to make one in a year or two when I have the room and $$ for a 100+ tank. Setting the hardscaping on that is gonna be a %$^@! though. Your gonna need like pounds of silicone.... then the size of the tank and angle you have to work from is awful. HAHA, it should still be done though!

to aqua scape just hang yourself with a steel wire. I am sure I might have some left from my spy days.

Could always cheat and set up a table level with the top of the tank. Put all the rocks you are working with there. Throw some foam on one side of the tank then just sit/kneel on the one side that is to be water and work from there... tank is 6'x2' so should be enough room(for me at least). A tank meant to hold 1000's of pounds of water isn't going to be bothered my a person being inside of it. In the end no matter how you do it tank will hurt you more then you hurt it lol. Unless its really old a 200 gallon is likely to be acrylic not glass.

that would work but you need a way out. Also you could glue the rocks together and slwly lower them in. For the sustrate just dump it in and there on. For glue I would use silicone or something

Do you realize a 200 gallon tank weighs about 2,000 pounds? Will your floor boards hold that much weight?
