Haha, as Rssky said above - a beast to be sure! Yikes!!! I know nothing about these guys, they look pretty scary O.O Can't wait to hear how they do in that big ol' tank. . .
Thanks Chesh! It's been really fun!

As soon as I get my 90g (which I just decided to get right this second ) I am going to put my Payara in there and turn this tank into a "desert oasis" aquascape. I had a dream I built a custom bird cage the exact same size and hung it directly over the tank to house some finches in so we have earth, water, and air in effect. However toward the end of the dream a friend of mine came over with an Asian Arrowana in a bucket that he rescued and we freaked out not knowing if we should keep it.. Then I woke up to my Boston Terriers staring at me and creeping me out. I need to get better sleep.. This is the third time I've had a dream about Arrowanas.. I know a guy that has really nice Jardinis for sale around here.. maybe my Payara needs a friend.

Not to cross threads here.. but this MTS is getting out of hand honestly.

yes

Arrowana are coolest fish. I've never had room for anything like that, but always dreamed. Love big tanks with big fish.

Thumbs up Update on reseal.





So far no leaks. I am giving it an hour and I'm going to check again. I hope 48 hours was enough time for it to dry. That's what I read was the required dry time.. fingers crossed.

I will be adding new gravel, already established filters, air-stone, fake plants and power-head and heater today too if all goes well.

Talking No leaks!

SUCCESS!

I am still a little worried about the thickness of the glass, Its super thin for this size tank. Adding the power-head will help keep old guy busy (the love swimming in a fast current and have been known to hang out right in front of the power-head), but I was worried that with his fast speeds, slamming into the glass on the other end of the tank (with the help of the current) could be a major issue.. So...

I am trying out a "make-shift bubble/plant wall" as a preventative

I am going to add a few smooth rocks to that end as well.. It wont stop him from slamming the glass if he is startled, but I'm hoping it will help slow him down some, IDK..

All Finished!




Now we wait for the temp to raise.

I am going to have water parameter issues I'm sure, as the gravel is new. I need to get this guy into this tank ASAP as the size of the tank is known to be a big stressor for Payara. I am going to keep an eye on it.. This is the part where I freak out....

Not in this tank.. maybe a smooth rock if anything else. This tank was a rescue and I've already put a lot of time and money into it. I am for sure going to do a planted tank, but I've never done one yet so i'm going to start with my 30g this week.
