Exclamation I just got a free tank!!!

I'm super excited right now!! I just made an agreement with my grandma, my 35 gal for her tank. It's just been sitting around collecting dust. The tank was given to her from my aunt, who didn't want it, thing is it's was given to my aunt from someone else lol. Atfirst I thought it was a 40 breeder, but it looks bigger. It's going to be planted all the way. Any ideas for this FREE tank.

Is it 36x18x16? That would be a breeder.

German Blue Rams, Pelvicachromis Taeniatus, any dwarf cichlids make a tank come out IMO.

Do that with some panda corys or spotted corys. throw a nice species or shoaling fish and you have a beauty!

I'd go Apisto harem of some type, and big schools of small fish. Maybe hatchets for up top and cherry barbs for mid water?

What about loaches for the bottom? Zebra, angelicus kuhli come to mind.
Something like this would be nice in a planted tank.

Np, Other options like dwarf rainbowfish smaller danios and what not come to mind for top water.

(I slightly enjoy planning stocking lists) I needed a break from Math Homework so I threw another list together, Though I am not sure how well the apistos would react to larger dithers as i have not kept them myself.
