Sooo many possibilities....

I'm sure that this is posted all the time, but i can't think of a better bunch of folks to consult about this. It's happy time in my house, i've got a new tank!!! It's 80cm x 45 x35 (about 120 litres, not sure what that is in gallons, sorry) and i'm getting a little over excited about what to do with it, what to put in it, what decor, what everything! I've got a few ideas, but i'd really appreciate any more thrown at me. I just kinda threw together my last tank, and it looks nice, but i really want to plan this one properly and make it a bit special, so any ideas, however wacky or extreme are appreciated. Get thinking folks! (please.)

That's about a 30g tank.

Assuming your tank listings is correct, I'd suggest cycling the tank and then putting the angels in it as they are going to outgrow the 10g. South American cichlids would be cool. Add a piece of driftwood to soften the water. I like java fern on top of the driftwood. Throw in some gold nugget plecos for algae control.

do it planted and put a school of 20 neon tetras and a school of 10 pigmy cories, and some ottos... put lots of drift wood and rocks at the bottom for the cories and have it massively planted

Can I suggest maybe ancistrus plecs instead? Gold nuggets grow to about a foot long which is ar to big for a 30g tank. Unless of course you have a bigger tank somewhere for when the angels outgrow the 30g, in which you could put it in.

I don't have a bigger tank yet, i think three tanks is pretty good for only being in the hobby since january, but i have a sneaking suspicion that a bigger one'll turn up at some point... I'm liking the cichlid tank ideas - how many could i fit in, and what ones are nice to have?

I have only checked 2. One said 12", one said 14". I have seen a pretty big one in my lfs, probably about 8". Here is a pretty big one as well:



Smaller plecs are pitbull, bulldog, ancistrus, clown and queen arabesque.
