Good luck! No matter what tank you get, you'll be wishing you had more, bigger ones. So as big as you can go is definitely the most cost effective in the long term!

I dont know at this point, something colorful, but im not sure what. I was thinking possibly a pair of swordtails, but then i thought, that would potentially be a lot of fry in one tank at a time, so i dont know, maybe a gourami or two

Kribs and gourami can both be rather territorial, even if they occupy different areas. IMHO gourami and cichlids are not a good mix temperament wise.

i looked in my tank today, and my brazillian sword plant rotted from the roots up. I had to take it out, it was all brown and mushy. All my other plants appear to be doing fine, im just confused as to why it rotted. Anyone know? or have suggestions?

brazillian swords aren't actually aquarium plants.

really? that feels like a kick in the nuts, and a waste of $3.95 but i do feel stupid cause the people at my lfs lied to me and told me it would do fine, oh well, any suggestions for a replacement?
