90 gallon stocking suggestions

Sorry for the consecutive threads. Idk if we're not supposed to do that, but I've got one more, as soon as I can remember what it was going to be about.

The tank will be brackish, probably. Suggestions? Preferably peaceful fish, although puffers are on my list of possible fish.

RIP fire eel
why did you think it was a good idea to keep going over the top of the tank
when you realized you couldn't breathe outside water?

No, I didn't mean together. Just either a puffer tank or a peaceful tank. But so far my options on brackish fish seem pretty limited. Archer fish, the purple spaghetti eels I'm trying to get, dragon gobies, butterfly gobies (I think that's what they're called), ropefish, monos, scats, bumblebee gobies, and... that's it. Oh yeah, the puffers too, but those don't really... go... well with community fish.

Yeah I really want one of those. But even teacups need a bigger tank than a 90 gal, don't they?

monos are cute the yellow stands out inca brackish tank. motoro rays are a real nice addition to any tank but the minimum for it is a 100g yours fall short of 10 g. if you kept a little one it can live in the tank for quite some time.

Teacups and motoros are the same thing, right? I need to do more research on rays, and I'm really cautious about keeping them since I heard they die easily and are really expensive, but maybe if I can't get the purple spaghetti eels I'll look into a ray. For my tank, I was thinking of having:
1-2 purple spaghetti eels
4 archer fish
Maybe some monos or scats. I haven't looked into scats yet.

Seriously?!

You've gotten me hooked on stingrays now. I really want one. A small one will work, won't it?

Must... fight... the urge... to get one!!!





I caved in. Not that I've gotten one yet, but seriously, people have kept them in smaller tanks, and in the same size tank that I have, and they were fine. I think if I only have one small one it will work... if I can get one that doesn't cost my life savings and doesn't die the day after I get it!

lol they used to be real expensive but that was a year or 2 back.they should be less expensive now. i bet you could kept one in there for a while if you get a small one ^.^ do the research first so it wont die on you.they love live ghost shrimps =)
