First post, hi!
I have a 54 gallon corner aquarium. It has black substrate and black back ground and a huge piece of drift wood. It is heavily planted with a large anubias on the drift wood, grasses, swords, etc, all green and one light red plant (forget the name).
Right now the only fish left in the tank are 6 large tiger barbs and one 3 inch pleco. I made the mistake to throw 12 cardinals in the tank (i had barb and cardinals without a problem before) but the barbs ate them within 48 hours.
I am now thinking of catching the barbs and taking them to LFS to exchange them for......
The idea i have is to make this tank a species tank. I am thinking of either about 2 dozen tiger barbs ('natural', albino and green mixed) or a group of 40 orso Cardinals...
Any ideas of what species would look really cool in a rather dark 54 corner??
