Assumably you mean the fish in your signature?

1 oscar 6inch
1 firemouth 3inch
1 common pleco 4inch
1 long finned tiger oscar 1inch
1 eletric blue demesy 1inch


If so you will be well understocked. Tons of room spare.

That's a HUGE tank! Over 500 gallons.

Exactly what willie said, you'll have plenty of room if you are referring to the fish in your signature.

Ihope you plan to build this tank in your basement....I agree with everyone else, with the fish in your current signature, you will be fine with a 400 gallon tank and room for more fish........Did you think about filtering it yet?......and the water changes?.........just something else to consider......Did you price the glass yet?.........Curious what that hunk of glass is gonna cost......Good Luck!

The fish are going to love it. Mine are looking forward to the oncoming 150, let alone a 400-600!

southamericancichlidguy23 10-26-2009 06:50 PM

yea im expect probly 500 for the glass alone another 200 for the filter system and another 200 for the airfilter

When do you plan to build it? I have always wanted a tank of 400+ gallons! Be sure to post some photos of your progress.
