    Nice tank! I'd get a couple more Oscars personally and no pleco. Plecos make a lot of waste and the large ones don't do much cleaning up.

    Why do you have an African Cichlid in there?

    Hi Luke, great looking tank.

    I would put a hollowed out piece of driftwood in there and add a Ghost-Knife fish. They are soooo cool the way they swim side-ways and they grow to around 12 inches long. Really fascinating fish the way it sort of undulates with its fins. I had one in my 120 gallon.... it was a rescue and didn't survive. In a large tank these fish would look just spectacular.

    I BGK wouldn't go well with Oscars or a Clown Knife IMO. They are pretty docile fish.

    I would so love to have your tank..... i don't even know where to begin to suggest what to put in there.

    hes been getting moved around a lot he was in a 29 gallon that got sold with some cichlids but the guy didnt want him for some reason so i am going to take him up to my LFS and get some "store credit" for some other fish

    Good point on the Pleco i think they look nice but my 5 inch in the community tank probally makes 50 percent of the waste so i cant imagine what a large one would do. Hmm i dont know maybe some larger catfish. I know arownas get to big but my LFS loves when people bring in overgrown fish. I have a lot of research to do
