Welcome to Fishforum.com.

I wouldn't recommend getting a catfish anymore. Your tank is overstocked already, not to mention all your fish are still on growing phase.

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.

4 ft tank is enough for only the Red Devil.

to keep the amount of fish already in the tank an absolute minal is a 125 gallon. now thats with bio-load and everyone haveing their adequate space. ntm adult red devils will fight anyone and anything in under 100 gallons. either one oscar or 1 red devil is what id keep out of that stock list.

Not a problem with an additional 75 more tanks, Bob. But your basement is cramped, isn't it?

I can guess 500. He currently has about 400 running with extra spare tanks and then these 75 tanks.
