Came up with a few more ideas. How about elephant nose, fire or tire track eel. Maybe a red devil if you just want a single fish.

Siamese tiger fish are not hard to get in the UK easy are easy

prices range from £17-£1500 depending on size and type

No matter what part of the UK you live in I could name a shop that will have them

They are very slow growing
They grow fast from 2 to 7" we'll fastish about 1 year
Then after 7" they grow about 2" per year

This is my super rare type of tiger dat pulcher they are now extinct in the wild

You can get types that look the exact same and you can get them all over the place in the UK

The name of Siamese tiger fish is datnoid

They are very easy to find trust me

Shops like wharf aquatics pier aquatics wholesale Tropicals and loads of the maidenhead aquatics have them just call around

Wild woods even have a online store to order from

A 6x2 is a large tank but way to small for stingrays you need a 7x3 min for stingrays they get massive

This is one of my female rays which is considered a small ray

Yes 9 years old that is the extinct kind datnoides pulcher

Everyone says your tank won't be big enough which it won't be long term but we all buy and sell fish all the time

You would be ok with a datnoides microlephs for abut 3 years

After 3 years it may look to big for the tank

There is a big demand for large tiger fish if you buy a small one for £20 after 3 years it will be worth £150

A Oscar will grow to double the size of a tiger in 1-2 years its the Oscar you will need to worry about eating the tiger

If you buy a small Oscar for £15 when it gets big you will be lucky to give it away as everyone wants to buy them small

Due to tigers slow growth rate people want them big
