As the title says
I have a 96X36X36 and I feel my tank is too small (width) as these fish get very large. Just my opinion.
My buddy wass gonna add one to his 6 long-4wide-18tall tank...think its suitable to live with a few black arowanas and a bunch of pbass?
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.
Alright thanks guys
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!
