The planned fish are some different synodontis (eupterus and nigrita), African brown knifes, a polypterus, and some Egyptian mouth brooders if I can find some. The idea of an African arowana sounded appealing, but I've heard they are problematic to raise up.
I'ld looked at some of the smaller papyrus forms. The idea of one hitting about four feet or so seemed like the best option to balance out the size of tank. So the goal is to get a light capable of keeping the papyrus alive and growing some form of floater either water hyacinth or water lettuce.
