Hi there and welcome to the website. Not sure why you didn't receive an e-mail. Anyway, I have activated your account so you now should be able to log in.

I think you'll need to get rather a large tank if you are thinking about getting an arrowana I think you'll need rather a large tank. I think the majority of them can reach at least 3 feet.

Please do keep posting answers to people's questions, it is nice to have somebody else on board who can help out.

Well at the moment I have a 180 With a home made wet dri system and pushing 2000 gph if the ball valve's are wide open, please dont take this as gloating, alot of this stuff came free cause of the sales rep's at the pet store I worked at.

But the thing that I hate is that I am going to have 3 fish in there. 2 are "say" 3 inch. and a arrowana 5 inch. That is alot of tank for 3 fish lol....

Glad you made it here at last. Yes, those fish will look small in the big tank but remember that it won't be very long before they grow fairly big.. not really sure about the arrowana, having never had one, I don't really know what the growth rate is, what I do know is that they do get quite big.

This link might be of some interest and certainly backs up what I say. Good luck anyway

Welcome Gerard, you don't play football by any chance do you?;)
Good luck with your oscars, they will be happy fish in a big tank and will be 8-9inches by a year:)

Are you in the uk?

I love my river dogs

It reminds me of a joke. "What do you say to a Scouser who is wearing a three-piece suit? Will the defendant please rise?

That was only a joke, I have a lot of respect for our Liverpudlian friends, I have many friends up there

I think fish was referring to Stephen Gerrard who plays for Liverpool
