I have not added anything new to the tank. Notable favourites that have passed on are both arapaimas (the oldest was 10 years), the wallago leerii female (24 1/2 years) and the planiceps.
Good to hear from you, makes the world a better place. What do you attribute the pima's demise to?
Also pics to drool over and dream about would not go amiss:)

I don't believe they have a long life in any aquarium. Watching them over the years at public aquariums I seldom saw that they lived more than 10 years.

Can you share the dimensions? How did you construct it?
I would like to build one similar

I'm am in awe of your tanks. You have taken the hobby of fish keeping to another level.

I'm curious as to what do you do with the fish that die? Are they fed back to the population? Stuffed and mounted on a wall (for the ones you were more attached to)? Put in cold storage?

And I thought my puny 130 g qualified me to join this group!
But hey; I also have a 150! Plus 2 goldfish in a 15000 g above ground swimming pool.
Oh, I almost forgot the Pleco in the hot tub!
