Heres a list:
any member of carinotetraodon as they are pretty small,
teraodon abei,
tetraodon fluviatilis
tetraodon miurus
tetraodon suvattii
teraodon biocellatus
colomesus asselus (spelling)
chonerhinos silus

to name a few, if your tank was a little wider you could get t. fahaka which is a beautiful fish

the reason why iam buying a new tank becuase the tank are going upstairs and if i buy a second hand one the tank might leak and if it leaks it will go all downstair, into the wood and the wires and that would cost at lot of money to repair and the other problem is how to i get to my house because i have no car.

Think ahead before you buy the monsters that get huge. Remember that moving out is not cheap and you may not have the money right away to give these guys the right home.
the P. nig. look like a great choice though.

Also, if your parents and floor can handle it, go used and bigger.
