    I have a 96X36X36 and I feel my tank is too small (width) as these fish get very large. Just my opinion.

    That's only 270 gallons, that's way to small in my opinion..

    6X4 is probably not bad. In my mind I always imagine these monsters hitting close to the 3ft mark so I always try to think how much room the fish would have to move around. When I was in my teens and before I knew better, I had a TSN in my 6ft 150 gallon tank that was 18 inches wide. It quickly grew longer than the width of the tank so I will always strive to not repeat that mistake.

    I think I personally would prefer something 8X4 or larger.

    As far as a few black aros in the 6X4 as well as the TSN, I think that might be stuffing it a bit as the black aros will grow large themselves.

    Go to a public aquarium and chexk one out that's grown. I love seeing tsn and rtc grown in person. It really pits them into perspective of how small a tank even an 8x4 tank is!
