I'm on a posting spree today as it is the first day I've had to myself since before christmas. Thought id put somthing out to the forum because I've been having a heck of a time deciding what to do in my new 75 that I got for christmas. Its been up for about four weeks with mature filter and rockks from a well-established tank and the water quality is stable. I've been adding two flakes of food per day to feed the nitrogen cycle. Readings are ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrAte 10 . Last night I added about 20 stems of anacharis from my soil tank.
I'm in no hurry to rush anything because I have 5 other tanks to play with and more importantly, I've learned that while its real easy to make a descision for a tank, its a lot harder to change it if I change my mind or want to go for somthing different.
I really like cichlids, but I already have a 75 setup with cichlids. I love loaches, but again, I have a loach tank in my 40 gal. My other three tanks are as follows: 29 gall with gouramis and rainbow shark
26 gal bowfront with angelfish
10 gal soil tank with just plants( anacharis, hornwort, hygro, and anubias.
Any suggestions/ideas about what YOU think would be great for a 75 gal?
My ideas that I've been bouncing back and forth between are; platy breeding tank with dense plants and no ro.cks, african cichlids which I've never kept before but I do have all the equipment and stones for one, and tropical communitytank with small peacful fish, plants and a couple stones.
I'm hoping so one will have an unusual but interesing idea!
Thanks to all who reply
