Here's a update on this tank. Tank has been going strong since my last update. My snow gar ended up getting spooked and unfortunately broke it's back. It also ended up killing my female BD ray, so I moved it to a separate 180 gallon for now. Still don't know what I'm gonna do with it.

I also lost one of the Oscars randomly. The current stock include 3 large kelberi, 6 smaller kelberi (will likely move some after they grow out), 1 large Azul, Oscar, male BD ray, two Indo datnoid. Just purchased a flagtail which is quarantine right now.

I'm looking to maybe add another BD ray and asian arowana after thinning out some of the kelberi stock.

Tank maintenance is not too difficult. I do a 24/7 drip system so new water is always being added and then a bigger water change every 2-3 weeks. I clean the glass with a long handled microfiber mop during these larger water changes.

Almost all are eating Hikari massivore except the largest kelberi and one datnoid. This is the most frustrating part. Have considered separating the datnoid to aggressively pellet train but I don't want to set up another tank right now.

If you don’t mind me asking. How much did it cost to get it together counting the lights? And where did you get the lights?
I honestly don't remember anymore and I stopped counting halfway through the build. The little thingsike hardware, epoxy, glue etc do add up. I would say 2-3 k for the tank itself ( probably more now due to the increase in lumber prices). The light I built from scratch and costed me around 1k. I had really specific instructions given to me by someone on another aquarium forum.
