OscaritusTheOscar created the topic: New tank!!!

Hi all,

So i have decided to not go for the stingrays.
Alright. I just ordered a huge tank, it will be done in a few months or so! No haste.
So, i just went to my LFS and ordered my fish of my dreams... the RTC.
Now, i have a little of a problem. The RTC will just be around 6CM (1 Inch) and my O" is 8 Inch.
Will the Oscar try to eat it? Should i rehome the Oscar? Since RTC is my dream fish and i always wanted one i'm not going to abort the order.
I also don't want the Oscar to rehome since he's my little oscar.
The RTC will be here in 48 hrs. The new tank in 2 or 3 months.

Thanks.

More than likely your Oscar will eat your RTC...he would probably be doing you a favor if he did. I don't know how big this "huge" tank you ordered is but chances are it will not be big enough for a RTC. IMO RTC are one the many fish I believe should not be for sale in the hobby, they grow fast and they get very big 48"+. your general home aquarist is not capable of housing this beast. Again IMO.

What is the footprint of the 350 gal? Hopefully at least 96 inches (8 feet) long for a beast like that. Can you get someone to house the RTC for you until it is bigger?

Nothing you can do now unless you can cancel the order, this is why its so important to research BEFORE you buy

That fish is beautiful, but I don't think it should be in a 350gal tank. My dream fish is an Arowana but I know I could never have a tank big enough to care for one properly.

Wow. That is a huge tank! According to my calculations that is more than 1,400 US gallons, much bigger than 350.

ETA: Where the heck are you going to put that beast (and here I am referring to the aquarium)?

Your new tank is going to be 350 x 200 x 80 centimeters?

That's approx 11' x 6 'x 30" = approx 1400 gallons?

How did you come up with 350 gallon?
