I was thinking this for my growout tank ...

120Gallon
2x bichir
1x silver arow
1x pleco (common)
1x catfish (dont know what type yet)
1x Pike (dont know what kind yet either)
2x Jags

Would this be a good setup? and would it be possible to have them all eat 1 type of food?

Sounds like it's a bit much to me. But I am no expert.

that is the only reason that it wouldnt work.

Keep in mind that small arowanas are very sensitive to agressive fish. They can get spooked into not eating easily untill they are large.

As a complete amateur I'd say drop the Aro and be prepared for a lotta water changes, but what the hell do i know....!

btw, does anyone follow Formula 1? DID YOU SEE the Hungarian GRAND PRIX? mental mental mental. And Jenson Button finally won...superb!

Sorry...got carried away there...back to the fish...
