considering its a tall tank i would try to utilize the height........Do you like angelfish or discus?.........They would do really well in a tall tank of that size and you could also go with some of the larger type bottom feeders...Great find on the tanks!..........Congrats!

+one for Discus and or Angelfish. Lots of driftwood,maybe some leaf litter, sand substrate,and a whole gaggle of corydoras.

Amazing deal! gratz! I'm envious, of course. I dunno about what you like but recently I've been hearing about ripariums... half water half air type setups. If I had a big tank I'd be really tempted to have a little waterfall at one end and a jungle stream bank thingy goin... oh wow I just remembered archer fish. wouldn't those be cool in a riparium. Have fun!

Were it me, I would try and purchase adult Discus. I have raised them from the size of fifty cent pieces to adults and the young fish really need several small feedings a day to achieve their potential. This means frequent small water changes to keep organic levels to a minimum.
Adult fish on the otherhand,can be fed twice daily and weekly water changes will suffice in my expieriences with them.I might also recommend that the fish be purchased as a group but realize that not all can afford to do so. I am one of those people.
I purchased mine quite young and added one fish each payday until I had a group of six. Not much more appealing to the eye in my view ,than a tank with a group of Discus gliding about.
