I used to have lots of Asian aro back in Asia, but now I'm here in Canada I'll be only dreaming to get what I want. I can't even have an outdoor pond here the temperature is to cold and change a lot. If this is only a dream I go with the biggest tank that can house 20 asian aros but still have room for other types of aros and other fish that I like.

I used paint shop pro to resize the picture of my tank and saved the reduced image. You can even use the paint program with windows to do this. I used it to reduce the image below of my mixed reef and future Jar/Ray tank (as it is now). I need to get a camera to take better pictures!

1 of the following (24K or a SR) I'll even settle for a RTG! with the following as fillers which I have (1) Flagtail prochilodus, (9) Datnoids (5) Geophagus altifrons. (7) Large clown loaches in a 600 gallon. I am running a daisy chained sump, a 40 gallon for mainly Bio rings, a 70gallon sump for sock and bio balls returning pump is a hammer head reefelo choked at 70% . I am also running 1 eheim 2260 and 1 FX5. no rays in the 600 gallon, likely the rays will get their own tank.
