I see one evil dat tank. And you all thought I was going to say Victorian cichlids. lol

Wanting a planted tank took the Vics out of contention.

I would hunt down a pair of jacks or oscars for something that big. I love fish with personality :)

An Arowana wouldn't thrive in here, but it could be a good grow-out tank.

A full-grown Arowana should have the length of the tank be at least 3 times longer, and the width be at least twice as deep.

Datnoids would be my suggestion as well.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
