Thing is, it's a bit of an illusion. I'm having a difficult time with my camera and this tank. My usual video is coming out "blue" so I had to do some adjustment. Shes much bigger in the tank than she looks, it's just the thick glass distorting it. But she's already settled! She's now claiming the tank as her own and even pulled a Queen flaring up to show me "HEY THIS MY TANK!". She also ate a worm that I put in for her.

Sen does looks small in that tank. I always thought Sang's bichirs were bigger but when I saw them they weren't TOOO huge. I guess it's only because I have a giant pleco now hahahah. I was expecting to Queen to be HUGE though :P
Sang, I like that log in there. Are you going to put Stumpy in the 90 Gallon as well?
I'm glad everything turned out so well for us all. That said Sen isn't really that big. To get a real idea of scale with Queen she has to come out and breach. Then you realize "Wait she looks a lot bigger than she did when hiding in that cove of hers". But yeah once you have a giant fish like that big pleco nearly everything else will seem tiny. Yes that long bit of wood will stay in there. I don't plan to move Stumpi over right away. Right now Queen ignores him so I'm going to wait till she shows signs of beginning to pick on him before moving him over. This gives me a chance to fatten/heal up Sen and give her more confidence when it comes to food time.
The ropes however will go in when I feel I'm ready for them to go. Also I brought home an enormous Bronze Wendtii that we found at the pet-store. I had to break it into three plants but it helps fill in the tank and create more green to make the thing look less bare. I expect to see melting but hope to get more root tabs to keep them happy.
