So I have an established tank with 2 Oscars, 1 Arowana, and a Red Bellied Pacu. The Pacu and possibly 1 of the Oscars is going to find a new home. My question is I am looking at adding a few new fish to the tank, including a Pleco and a Morey Eel. No one I have talked to knows how the Eel will interact with the Oscar and mainly the Arowana. The Oscar is ok sized, the Arowana is right over a foot long. The Eel is a young one and the reason I am considering this is because the Eel is a bottom feeder and the Arowana a top water fish. I have a Chiclid sand substrate with drift wood and rocks..4 Biowheel filters, 2 media holders, and a Canister filter rated for much more than the the tank it is in, and 2 Power heads. Ive never had an issue with water quality, and tend to keep the water brackish with a upper level pH. As with Oscars the tank is NOT planted and just has the drift wood and rocks. The tank is a 100 gallon and will be upgrading to a 300 gallon in January or Feb. Anyone have any advice? I havent actually gotten the Eel yet because this is a pretty expensive uh oh. I was also looking at putting a needle nose gar into the tank, and in the future possibly a stingray. Thanks

I assume you mean freshwater moray eel? Since you posted this in the brackish section I'm going to guess that you know that the "freshwater" moray eel requires brackish. I don't believe your other fish are suitable for brackish, but someone else will have to say. IDK of any brackish rays either, they are normally fresh or saltwater.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
