    So SOOOOOOOOOOORY

    Yes I forgot to mention the 3 Sorubim lima. One of which is possibly 24 inches TL. I got her a few years ago from NOEL Nathaniel the Vice Pres of the Hamilton Aquarium Society. She is a magnificent fish.

    You could grow that alligator gar up to its potential size in a 50k tank. The fish I would put in there...if only.

    The Aligator gar is probably big enough to go in the 50k tank now (Remember it had been in the 15k before). Its over 30inches. But prior to now it probably would have been a late night snack for the Walego leeri, Sorubimichthys planiceps or the Phractocephalus hemioliopterus. Although I do have lots of cichlids in the 50K now it is because I added more lava rock a year after I built the tank. With the original supply of rock in the tank:

    The Walego ate a school of 6..... 12inch Oscars the first night they were placed in the tank.

    The Sorubimichthys planiceps ate a 28inch Arowana

    The Phractocephalus hemioliopterus ate a 32inch eel. (The eel weighed about 3 lbs)

    So the Gar would have been toast when he was smaller than 30 inches.

    With the extra rock in place the smaller fish now have a lot better chance and in fact reproduce, live and are eaten much like in nature. Some of the smarter cichlids and characins have been in the tank for nearly 10 years now.

    I leave 2 lights on in the tank at all times.

    What an amazing tank. Gob smacked by it. Would love this size filled with many Malawi cichlids. Would love to be able to swim with them when ever I want to. My own private little Lake.

    The Aba Aba is in its own 500 gallon tank. They are too viscious for most fish to handle at night.

    The Wallegos are too dangerous to go in this tank they are in the 50k+

    I've had large schools of Malawi cichlids in the 50k+ and it would be cool to swim with them.

    I lived in Capetown for almost 7 years a while back. SA is a beautiful country.
