Talking My Tank!

I would love some input on my tank. I've spent around $800 so far. I plan on adding a couple of small archers (when I can find them!), a columbian shark, and possibly a rope fish (my first one died of unknown reasons and will be doing more research before I get another one. A lot of the decorations will be replaced with "base" rock slowly to hopefully help with the filtration. Any input and advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

I think the bbg have a little bit of growing to do also. I keep the dragon well fed, so he should leave them alone. He hasn't even acknowledged them the month I've had them

Do you know how big those flounders get? My pet store had them and I was thinking about it.

I've heard they get to be around 5", possibly bigger. They need a lot of surface area and sand to cover themselves with to be happy. And keep in mind that they do need brackish conditions long term, possibly full marine later on in their lives. It's hard to get them to eat (the reason I believe one died) and heard they've been known to be fin nippers. As of the bumblebee gobies and dragon goby relationship... I believe I spoke to soon. 2 out of the 3 are now missing and the dragon goby is looking a little bloated :/

Smile Hi, I'm new to the forum

I'm new to the forum and have read quite a few comments, I'm sure I can learn a lot from you all. Here is a pic of my tank, hoping to add a school of rasboras soon. I have more plants that are going to be added, ordered them just haven't gotten them yet.
