lol... I have the same problem. I live with my parents, so anything over 75 gallons in out of the question. For a 100+ gallon tank I would have to connect my tank to the house's plumming. There is too much work involved in manually draining a 100+ gallon tank once a week. Since I'm moving out soon, I dont plan to do this, but I would love to if I ever become a home owner myself.

75 gallon, fillstar xp2 with inline reactor, 12 Lb pressurised co2, 4.2 WPG-corallife 3x96 watt PC-, fluorite/silica-sand substright.

Very nice but my first impression is that the aro is too big for the tank...

Or the tank is too small for the aro...

Aros need space... that aro looks cramped.

I understand the limitation of choice that you have with regards to tank size.

Unfortunately, the aro doesn't really care about why you cannot get a bigger tank... it still doesn't look too comfortable in the space it has.

The general rule with arowana owners is...

you tank needs to be at least as wide as your arowana is long. So if you have a tank thats 4 feet x 1.5 feet. You should only keep your arowana untill it reaches 1.5 feet long.

PS: does your arowana have "droop eye"?

i know that he isnt as comfortable as he could be, but considering he can turn in 8" of space at his size i think he isnt too uncomfy. anywayz i make up for it by taking care for him very well, weekly water changes, best food (beefheart mix + cichlid gold pellets) never any live fish. I cant give him up at this point anyway because most likely 90% of the people who would take care of him cant take care of him as I can. I will do daily water changes if i have to to make him happy concidering i already do this for my discus.
