    We used to dump 20-30 small goldfish every week (roughly) in with our lot in the early 90's.. that was a 6x2x2 (150 imp. galls) with 2 large Oscars, Perruno, Ornate Pim, Clarotes Laticeps, Royal Plec.. couple of others that I can't remember.

    Not something I'd feel very comfortable about doing any more. Or recommend.

    Looking forward to seeing yours all up and running etc... there's something quite impressive about large, glass encased, bodies of water...
    700L - Sadly gone and sorely missed

    2 in the planning.. 30L shrimp tank and 60L Juwel Monolux for shellies

    Predatory tanks are quite hard to put together, and then ultimately getting all the livestock to behave. This just won't happen, they are predators after all. Ego is still king among these types of fish. So whichever species you choose, be prepared to either rehome the bullies or fish out the bodies, as you will get plenty of both. My best advice, work out what you will try, and buy the final stocking of fish right from the get go. Get them all as small fish, and place them in the tank all at once (After fishless cycle of course), That way it's a level battle ground for space and territory for all the fish, and hopefully as they grow, they may just learn to love each other. Good luck with that LOL!

    2 geophagus
    2 ornate birchers
    2 african birchers
    12 pictus
    30 red hooks

    Please do some research on these species, geophagus need to be kept in a good group (6) also 1 ornate bichir is all I would have as they are one of the more aggressive species. Others to consider are senegals, palmas, endli or laptadei
