Guys my uncles birthday is coming up and he owns this huge tank in his hotel. Yes his own hotel and I would like to give him a predetory catfish as a gift. Would a redtail be available or would this tank be too small or can I get a tiger shovelnose? Thx

Some photos

What are the dimensions

I think that is the thing. You can only estimate.

I'd estimate from the pictures and anything that you can put in relation to standard sizes... between 2,5 and 3m long, ~1/2 meter deep, ~1/2 meter high. But not more than an estimate. There is nothing absolutely standardized in the picture, so I couldn't get closer to the actual size.

But just judging by the likely depth/hight... I wouldn't put a redtail or a shovelnose in there.

A red tail and a shovel nose would quickly outgrow that tank.

It's a 300 gallon

But If no then what would you recommend?

A Lima Shovelnose should be fine?
No experience with large fish purely throwing out a name

Predatory Central American Cichlids. Most species are very colorful, grow to at least twelve inches & have teeth.
A few good sized limestone rocks stacked on gravel or sand is all that's needed to get started.
Just a few cichlid suggestions: Red Devil / Midas, Jaguar, Cuban, Dovii
Texas, SalvinI & Jack Dempsey. Many more to choose from.
A community tank of beautiful supercharged aggressive Cichlids should be enough to capture the attention of the hotel guest.

Shovelnose can grow to 24" If the tank is big enough will grow to about 48"

Have you told your uncle about this plan, or at least researched that a large predatory fish will be okay with the current tank inhabitants?

Lima Shovelnoses are smaller reaching about 20"

I can only get tiger shovelnoses or redtail cause I'm in malaysia

Just give your uncle something not live-fish related. I bet the Arowana is very important to him and I don't think you want to accidently introduce a fish desease to the tank and by doing so potentially kill it.
