Yeah I'd use that, a 40b is the same dimensions just not as tall. The 40b (36x18) footprint is actually larger than a standard 55g (48x12)

Thanks! If I ever get around to setting up the 50g I'll get a BGK.

Get one of the clear platic tubes made for those fish he will almost always stay in it and you get to put it in a place for best viewing. I had one and he stayed in the tube for the most part, makes them think they are hiding.

I agree they swim very erratically up down left right... Backwards lol

I saw a couple today at my LFS. Really cool fish, my dad and I had one in our tank when I was little. In fact, that is the only individual fish I remember from that tank. Really nice planted 75 gallon. The BGK loved it.

Is a 75 gallon tank okay for this fish. Done tons of research on them just want to see what folks think. 48x18x21.

Also what do folks think of a rope fish, red tailed shark and blue crayfish as tank mates. cray fish added last after others get to a size where they can't be dinner without a fight...

Hi, I have a bgk with a rope fish they get on really well. I wouldn't ever put a red tailed cat in as they are just to unpredictable. They get big and while the bgk are hard to get past 15" the red tailed. At will get to much bigger than that and would still make a meal of your bgk. I don't know about the cray fish as I have no experience with them. Maybe someone else could help. Also the red tailed cat would have to be moved to a bigger tank at some stage before he is fully grown as that tank would be to small for a red tailed IMO. hope this helps.

Sorry ignore my ramblings regarding a red tailed cat, you said red tailed shark. My apologies. That fish would be fine with a BGK. It's probably the pre operation nerves. That's where I'm going today, to repair my smashed collar bone. Again sorry for my mistake.
