I have finally talked The Missus into a second, and more importantly, larger tank.
I am granted permission to acquire either a 50 or 55 gallon tank during the next "Dollar per Gallon" sale at Petsmart.
The debate comes down to the 48" length of the 55 vs the 18" depth of the 50 gallon.
I intend the following:
loads of plants, rooted, stem,floating, hardscape mounted, the whole shebang.
Piles of driftwood.
11 or so Harlequin Rasbora
11 or so Emerald Catfish
1 pair Bolivian Rams
Possibly another school, or a pair of gourami of some sort.
Possibly some Khuli Loaches
Would a 55 or 50 suit this setup better?
