I see one evil dat tank. And you all thought I was going to say Victorian cichlids. lol

Wanting a planted tank took the Vics out of contention.

I would hunt down a pair of jacks or oscars for something that big. I love fish with personality :)

Also could keep TinFoil Barbs, Silver Dollars, Bala Sharks, Fire Eels, TireTrack Eels, Bichir's, Multiple Black/Brown Ghost Knife's (normally kept singaly but could do 2-3 in 120 gallon), Red/Blackc Pacus and African Black Knifes.

An Arowana wouldn't thrive in here, but it could be a good grow-out tank.

A full-grown Arowana should have the length of the tank be at least 3 times longer, and the width be at least twice as deep.

so i got the tank home couldnt keep much water so ill let it cycle for a week or whatever it takes and get back to you all.
