What would you stock it with? Planted of course, but other than that lets go with no $$ limits ;-)
How many gallons?
Im toldots a 40, but since most bowfronts are either 36 or 46 id say 36 and hope for 46 lol Are there any predator type fish that would work in here?
If it's a 46 gal, a rope fish may work. What are the dimensions?
Its here but not.here if that makes sense, its packed in the moving van. So for now im definately planning for 36, with potential options for 46 if that is what it is.
36 may be a little small for a ropefish. Maybe a dwarf cichlid pair would interest you?
A ropefish requires at least a 125 gallon tank or so... Sent from my iPhone using Fish Lore Aquarium Fish Forum
My understanding was they could be in a tank around 50 gals since they're thin (even though they're long) and they're not super active. I don't have experience with these myself though, so I must be misinformed!
It depends. Bow fronts can be tricky because of how they are shaped. If it's at least a foot wide at the narrow parts, senegal bichirs may work. Or smaller American cichlids, or Africans. Not necessarily true predators, but aggressive.
