I just won a 40 gallon long tank. I am picking it up today and I can't wait. Well I was wondering what fish should I put in it. I want something big and aggressive like a pirahnna. I heard oscars need a 55 gallon tank so I can't put 1 of them in. Well can anyone tell me some oddball fish please

Congratulations! I would suggest you definitely research whatever you decide to put in that beautiful tank thoroughly. I would also check with your state laws on the pirahnas. There are many states (like mine) where they are illegal to own. If you are looking for out of the ordinary fish, many of the cichlids might be right up your alley. I have been looking at the geophagus varieties and find them quite cool. However, they get quite large, and may not be a good choice for your tank. I check aquabid quite a lot for ideas, and just start looking at the auctions with pictures to find out what the fish look like and then google the scientific name to learn about them. Also, with that size tank, you could try a species only tank, and have a large school of smaller fish which would be quite interesting, but they would probably not be aggressive. Check out the profiles here on FishLore to help you get ideas also.
