What would you stock it with? Planted of course, but other than that lets go with no $$ limits ;-)

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?

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.

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.
