HurbanLegend created the topic: Need Input

Hello friends,

I have a friend who is in need of rehoming his fish for a few months. Or forever. Would a 12" Silver Arowana and a 9" Gator Gar be ok with my 2 10.5" Oscars? They're the only ones in my tank right now. I wasn't planning on tank mates but I'd like to help my friend out. Just want to be sure my Oscars Won't get beat up, and vise versa.

I have a 180 gallon BB tank with some driftwood. Fx6 and an Emperor Biowheel HOB.

with big tank... the combi will be fine...
but 180 gal tank will not be enough for those monsters...
presently, i have a 2 years old silver aro in a 75 gal tank....
he is now 28" long with 7' wide body... how can you keep
such monster in a small tank with huge
tank mates

yes ... i know... 75 gal is too small for him but i do 50% water change every other day... it is pain in the ass... LOL! 28" long with 7" (not 7') wide body... and can consume 5 to 6 pcs of frozen herring every meal.. the gator can breach the 30" mark in 2 years too...
