suggestions for a 15g high?

I've got a 50g turtle tank and a 30g tropical community tank under construction...

In the meantime, a 15g high with an eclipse top fell into my possession and I'm trying to figure out what to do with it - I'm already doing the small community fish thing, and I'm working on a large goldfish pond at a relative's house - I'd want to do something different. Any suggestions for an interesting fish or setup for this size aquarium?

Thanks,

Jonathan

What about a single mean fish you couldn't keep in a community? A jewel cichlid or red-eye puffer comes to mind.

I have been flirting with the idea of a puffer ... is there a reason you suggested a red-eye rather than another species?

Well you could easily do dwarf puffers, but red-eye puffers get a little bigger but still stay small enough to keep in that tank for the long haul. Also, there are a limited number of true freshwater puffers. The only two I know of that stay small enough for your tank are the dwarfs and red-eye puffers. The other true freshwater puffers get absolutely huge.
