So I have gotten my hands on a 1000 gallon tank, and the fish that has caught my eye is the Arapima. State law in Texas is that A Arapima is legal, while Arapima Gigas is not..can someone tell me the differance. Also where I can obtain one..legally..

A true monster fish! At 6 ft potential length even a 1000 gallon may not be enough. You can try monsterfishkeepers.com. There's a photo of one in a 5000 gallon tank and it still makes the tank look too small.

I believe arapaima and arapaima gigas is the same thing. arapaoma gigas is just the scientific name.
You could put a couple arowanas and peacock bass in there. Maybe some rays if you want.

You could do a Red Tail Catfish. They are know to form a personality with the owner and be quite active catfish. you could also do alligator gar. Maybe even Giant Snakehead depending on where you live
