 Hi..  I'm  Kaya  and  pretty  new  to  IAH.  I  have  visited  the  forum  before  but  am  a  bit  more  active  on  MFK.  Been  running  through  IAH  and  its  definitely  helpful  and  informative  for  the  Indian  enthusiast.  Thought  I'd  share  my  2400  Gallon  Arowana  Pond  /  Tank  build.  The  build  has  taken  about  2  months  and  is  nearly  complete.  Took  me  a  year  of  dreaming  and  another  year  of  saving  to  get  this  project  rolling.  
 
 The  total  tank  volume  will  be  around  2400+  gallons  (tank  +  sump).  The  dimensions  of  the  tank  are  10'X7.5'X4'  and  the  sump  is  10'X2'X4'.  A  part  of  the  tank  will  remain  underground..  about  1.5'.  I  actually  wanted  to  raise  the  tank  above  the  ground  but  then  thinking  about  costs  involved,decided  to  go  with  the  cheaper  alternative.  The  other  reason  I  opted  to  keep  part  of  it  in  is  because  of  the  water  temperature.  I've  always  found  the  ponds  in  my  house  a  lot  warmer(though  there  are  no  heaters  in  there)  than  the  glass  tanks  after  a  major  rain  or  a  cold  night.  And  being  in  the  subtropics  /  tropical  climate  there  wont  be  major  external  heating  for  the  tank..  though  i  plan  to  put  in  a  chain  of  five  500  or  300  watt  heaters.  
 
 The  design  part  of  it  is  primarily  from  David's  Red  Arowana  Pondarium.  The  thread  is  http://www.monsterfishkeepers.com/fo...d.php?t=325084  .  David  has  been  extremely  helpful  in  answering  queries  and  clearing  my  doubts  on  his  build.
 
 Filtration  will  be  through  2  Boyu  Gardening  Bio  Filters  fed  by  2  Pond  pumps  delivering  14000  L/h  to  each  canister.  The  sump  will  house  the  pumps  and  heaters.
 
 The  tank  will  house  my  4  silver  Arowanas,  1  RTC,  2  Red  Belly  Pacu,  4  Oscars  and  6  Plecos(I've  got  some  13  Silver  Dollars,  2  Red  Devils  and  2  Green  Terrors..  All  in  a  grow  out  phase..  probably  when  and  if  they  are  large  enough,  might  move  them  to  the  tank).  The  main  aim  of  this  build  is  to  give  these  fish  the  space  they  need  (I  still  think  this  is  a  not  enough  but  it  is  better  than  cramming  them  in  a  120G)  but  again  with  a  budget.  Aesthetics  is  out  of  the  window  and  pure  functionality  is  what  this  tank  will  be.
