Thanky you all for your helpful answers!!

I already knew that the Red Tailed Catifsh is a HUGE fish that it is very hard (or impossible...) to keep in a home aquarium!! But...i needed a second opinion hereif it is possible or not to keep it!!

Ofcourse after all the above messases i am not going to get one...

I'll go on watching it at public aquariums or at youtube!

I don't know if i need to open a new topic in order to ask you about what kind of fish (i mean big fish) i can keep in a aquarium like 200x70x60 ... i like oscars, but i would like some more suggestions

Thank you all

Wait.... in inches or centimetres? If you want some big suckers I have seen people do pacus in 150+ usg tanks. A school of them looks quite impressive. Arowanas are another big fish, or you could look into keeping stingrays if the tank is big enough. If you have somewhere around 100g you can try a Fahaka Puffer; very cool stripes and will top a foot long. If you are attracted to big fish I suggest you join a monster fish forum, give your tank specs and let them help you choose a fish.

Personally I would put a school of 50-100 cardinal tetras in depeding on tank size. That would look awesome!

Well that's quite the huge tank! Anything I mentioned would be suitable; you may also have a lot of fun setting up an african or south american cichlid tank.

Agreed. You could put some monster cichlids in there. Wolf cichlids would be awesome. Definitely way cooler than some big ol' catfish anyway
