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 :)

Clown knife
Silver Arowana
Or U could do a large school of some larger preditory fish :
Green/Glass/Transparent Knife Fish :
Elephant Noses :
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.
