    Hi guys, this is my first post (apologies if this is in the wrong section). Basically I'm buying a bigger tank, it's
    70.8" x 18.8" x 29.9 and I'm not sure what to put in it. I have been doing some research and I am thinking of Gar, Bichir and some Datnoids...could someone give me some advice on which species of which to get and any needs this fish require, cheers

    Pretty much all gars will out grow that tank, you could get some birchirs and maybe some dats for a while as they are slow growers

    You could try Hujeta Gars, they will be able to live in that tank. Senegal bichirs would also work, but im not too familiar with the sizing and care of Dats...
    A school of pictus cats would also be cool :)
