I'd look into teacup stingrays, small, and hardy for rays.
Also the cheapest pretty sure, the nicer motoro rays run over a thousand dollars.

Hmm, which fish was it? I don't remember.

Yea, the big fish are a big commitment, and really aren't worth it unless you're totally gaga for them.

Thank you! He looks even better than his updated picture now!

And yeah, it's just that...I have no clue how to handle big fishies. They are amazing though. I just wonder if they would disrupt the cycle if i added a big one.

WOWZA what an improvement!

You'll have to decide between big fish or little fish. Because ever so often, big fish like to eat little fish.
If you want some ideas, you can look up rope fish, bichir, peacock eel, fire eel, African knife fish. Less of a handful than the lung fish or the rays.
If this tank is at least 2 feet wide (pretty sure it would be), you're one of the few lucky contenders for caring for a black ghost knife properly. Really common fish but most of them end up in awfully small tanks.
Also could have a lot of goldfish in there.

Thanks!

I have always wanted a black ghost. Wouldn't goldfish do something funky to the cycle? There is a huge filtration system, but don't they need like...super extra filtration due to them being messy fish? Of course, a black ghost needs epic filtration too.

Heehe, I'd start researching the ghost knife dreams. They'd make a stunning display with some angel fish and other larger fishies.

Goldfish don't need anything special, just strong filtration.

Also goldfish like to nibble and tear plants up lol.

Arowana! Is all I have to say, but they can get expensive, I would do small fish with a few "display" fish. So like rainbow fish or angel fish for example.

I wish I could have a huge school of rummies! I only have 10, good sized in a heavily planted NPT though lol.

Gold fish are cold water not tropical too so after cycling you would have to get rid of them and adjust temp to.
