I don't want just your 'standard' community aquarium (tetras, loaches, etc). I want something that's interesting. I've been scratching my head lately and I've considered Discus, and I haven't entirely ruled them out yet, but I am keeping my options open for right now.
Give me your ideas!
Discus ....EVERYONE does discus... right.
It depends on what you might consider interesting. Different colour, behaviour, unusual look, unusual maintenance and care....?
How about a figure 8 puffer tank? With the right tank layout you could put 4 or 5 in that tank... maybe just 4. Definitely more interesting and entertaining than a discus tank. Less work with the water I suspect (brackish) but high maintenance on the diet side of things.
Personally, I wouldn't choose to do puffers even if it were my 9th tank, but they are cool.
