5,236.4 gallon tank build

And you seem to know what you want.
Also 5 feet of height compared to 6 feet won't make a difference for angels lol

I'm just wondering how a cycle would go for a tank that large. I think the only way would be to heavily plant it immediately.

I'd assume just like any other tank but on a much larger scale. Dose bottles of ammonia let the cycle run its course. Fishless would save tons on water changes over fish in

I'm curious (this is not an attack) how old are you livefishguy? If you are still a minor I think this tank is not going to become viable until after colleague, because this thing would have lots of upkeep, unless you have someone maintain it for you, which wouldn't cost anything near the cost of the tank.

I think it would be awesome to have a knife fish tank with a few peaceful large fish. Or an oddball tank (freshwater soles, freshwater eels, etc). My friend loves oddball fish and has a black ghost knife fish and a peacock eel with a freshwater sole on order from a LFS.

How about some peacock bass

Or just go saltwater and do some bamboo sharks or rays.
