My Replacement tank

First two pics are of my previous 135gal African Cichlid (Malawi) aquarium. Had about 35-40 Cichlids along with about 10-15 Juv's and Fry.

Second two pics are of the replacement 240gal (Bare) BIG Fish aquarium that I got about 3-4 weeks ago. Currenlty has a 4 inch Green Texas Cichlid and a 22 inch Black Arowana (it was labeled as a Silver so I got it for about 1/4 to 1/5 of what it would have cost)

Enjoy

Thanks.

Not into SW, they look nice and everything but I'm drawn too Arowanas, especially the Asian Arowanas, Peacock Bass and the large Bichers.

Can't wait to have a tank with a half dozen to a dozen fish 18-30inches in length.

What type of lighting are you using? It looks almost like you are using a black light of some sort. Maybe it's the dark background and substrate. It looks amazing.

WOW! Being a saltie, I would love to see those as SW tanks, but your pics make for a great argument! Those are two beautiful tanks!

The first tank was replaced with the second tank, the one with the Aro. I'll post a few more pics of the new tank and my other tank.
