Decide what my new tank will be!!!!!!!!

Howdy folks, don't really post here much but I need some help. I just had a 29g tall tank with the Eclipse III hood come avail. (wife ditched the turtles) and I don't know what kinda tank to do.

I don't think I want a SW tank since I'm already working on a 5.5g and 12g reef tank. I already have a 120g oscar tank and a 30g long that is probably going to be a lightly planted community tank. I Want to use the stock lights and filter so it can't be anything too fancy (planted or SW).

So here it is. What do YOU think I should do with the 29tall??? FW puffer tank? Another community tank? Brackish tank? What? I like different things, I hate goldfish and the lower maint. the better.

Chime in with what you think.

Another community. Diamond tetras, lemon tetras, red phantom tetras, cardinal tetras, cories, otos, pitbull plecs, hatchetfish, pencilfish and many more.

Brackish: Probably only a figure 8 puffer or Etroplus.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Almost bought 2 GSPs today for a brackish tank but they looked bad (ich?) so we passed. I hate not knowing what to do. Another community? Really?

well first of all dont make the 5.5 gallon a reef. Make the 5.5 a male guppy tank or betta tank and make this 29 gallon tank a brackish water puffer.

too small, they should be at 10 gallons minimum, thats all, if you have a betta, community, agressive chichlids, reef, brackish, then you have the lot :)

Too small, nah, I've seen 5.5, 3g, 2.5g, 1.5g, 1g, .75g and .5g "reef" tanks. Just depends on what you want to keep.

Thanks for the advice though.
