That would depend on what species we are talking about since they grow from 24-84".

Lung fish grow very fast and large in an aquarium. I wouldn't recommend them for that size tank. I would just stick with the cichlids.

I agree, lungfish get MASSIVE. IMO they do better in 500 gall tanks or more. Especially if they are the ones from Africa.
