New 98gl! New to the forum :-) Some advice, please

Hello everyone!

I'm super new to this forum, but, have been reading it for a few hours now & am liking what I see! you're all really helpful & friendly & have some amazing tanks! So, I'm wondering if you could offer some help/advise for a big tank n00b :)

My BF & I have got an established 13g (60ltr) & 20g (90ltr) tank & we've managed to stumble upon a fabulous Jewel Vision 450 aquarium JUWEL Aquarium Homepage (an Ice Hockey friend on Twitter randomly asked if anyone wanted it for 200!, so we snapped him up!)

We've set the beauty up & we're waiting for mother nature to run her course But, have realised that the plans we had for the tank are seriously under prepared! I think we're still on small tank mentality

So far we have a lovely long stretch of bog wood & 10 natural plants, a circle aerator & so far some coral sand. We'll be getting some coral gravel at the weekend when the LFS has more in stock. The thing is, it all looks incredibly flat & I think it needs some sort of way to create a 2nd level or platform?

We'll be initially introducing our guppies, mollies, 2 bristlenose plecs, platty, pair of Kribs & tetras to the tank (not all at once though lol!) & keeping the 20g tank for the molly & guppy babies.

So, the help/advise we need is...

How could we make the big tank look less... well.. big! how can we create platforms or 2nd levels? I have some smaller plants & larger ones to help create a more interesting environment.

What other fish would you suggest? a big specimen fish or fishes maybe?

I should probably get a picture up too! I'll try & get one up ASAP :)

Sorry for the wall of text! & I look forward to any help anyone can offer

Oh noes! I also now realise I've posted this thread in the wrong place & I don't have the edit ability

I'd really appreciate it if an admin could move this thread to a more suitable are for me :)
