Hi Jose,

That's certainly a different collection of fish there. smile.gif Like your Pacu's and the knifefish. You mentioned red tail catfish, hope it is not THE red tail catfish as in http://www.scotcat.c...ioliopterus.htm as it can grow to big for the normal aquarium and it is also a loner!. The silver Arowana is also a big fish unless you aim to move the fish to other more suitable tanks in the future when some of these fish get too big and aggressive when housed together.

Hi Allan

I'm preparing an outdor 2400 gallon pond in my yard to move the big fishes when the time comes. I will post some pictures of the pond when ready. Yes the RTC is a Phractocephalus hemioliopterus

A pond for catfish eh? Sounds fantastic. Doubt if any would survive a Perthshire winter though!

Hi, a pond is a great idea for fish like a redtail cat mine is 3 foot long and lives in a 1000 gallon pond but you wont be able to keep a good temature unless you can build it in some kind out out house. Last winter mine cost nearly 900 just to heat it so for 2000 gallons your looking at double the price. mine has move in to a fully insulated shed now, just like keeping it in doors now hope this help Dan.

I don't know where Jose is based Dan, but I would guess a warm country looking at his personal profile. May be you could let us know Jose?

Have you any pics of your setups Dan?

Hi Dan,

Your Red Tail looks in great nick and yes 900 a year is a bit steep for heating. What kind of heater do you use for such a size of pond.?
I take it you live in England? and what size of indoor pond will you have in the new fishhouse.....questions, questions smile.gif
