Stick a decent size pump in there and use it as a swimMill :silly:

Too jealous to think but black ghosts look amazing from the videos anyway.

Emperor Tetras...............a good few of them.

A tank that size is wasted on marines and the likes...............so give it to the little guys instead.

+1 on that.
I think we always think "Big tank? Big fish!". A big shoal of something would look amazing.

Good topic Mossy.

For myself I could only envisage one scenario in a tank that large (assuming money was no object) and that would have to be an Amazonian -type of biotope with some brightly-and some dimly-lit areas with the predominant species being a large(ish) shoal of Altums - sheer bliss.

John i think that type of tank sounds good,get some roots in their also and lots of cardinals and you got a mini amazon going then.

Nice thought Gavin, but I fear the Cardinals wouldn't last too long with the Altums - I once read that they form the main food source for them in the wild, but even if this isn't totally the case any Altums I have kept in the past were the most efficient of predators.
Their days would be numbered...

Perhaps,ive some F1 rio nanay angels that thankfully have passed up the 30 or so cardinals in my tank so far....i suspect it is because they are well fed and power in numbers and all that.Altums would certaintly be that bit bigger and as you say the free lunch is always tempting for them.In a tank that size however you would hope the cardinals wouldnt get picked off too much...then again how many cardinals would you need for a tank like that!!

I guess I was leaning towards bigger fish as I have not had the opportunity to keep any so, if you have kept arros or the like before I vote for the Amazon biotope idea.

Oh the thoughts of having room for a nice group of altums :sick: :sick:
