That tank is obviously too big to be set up in Texas. Why, with one good shake it would probably slide into the Gulf of Mexico

I think it would look much better when set up in Illinois. Of course I would have to get my floors reinforced before I could use it

What fish are you planning to put in it?

Gene Heitman - 12 tanks (11 freshwater and 1 saltwater), 206 gallons, 20+ species of fish/shrimp/snails, 52+ species of plants ... 10 years ago I just wanted 1 tank with some fish

This tank is going to be the next phase tank for a number of my Polypterus species (bichirs) along with various 'Bush Fish' (Ctenopoma species), African Featherfin Knife Fish and other miscellaneous African river 'oddballs'.

There will be a larger tank in the future - something in the 240 gallon range will probably suffice.
