Kels orinos xingu-180 intermedia azuls ocellaris monos Pinima - 240 tems- 4ft wide 400+ ( All personal opinion) although I got all my bass in 400+ Once you upgrade to bigger tanks you won’t be able to imagine them in smaller confinements but it can be done. Good luck man

Based on experience I am having right now, I would shoot for nothing less than 240 gal. I have 2 kels.

Well the gallons isnt the most important. Thats the footprint. I have an 425g tank with 244x110cm as footprint. I used to keep 5 orinos ranging from 30 to 45cm in it and i think thats about minimum for that group. You have to take in consideration they get almost 70-75cm long and can get up to high speeds.
