1077, I love your idea. I initially had a visual image of a Kaudern Cardinal biotope, which would naturally be wooded and loaded with different seaweeds, and just a scattering of live rock. This is what led to my idea of a non-photosynthetic reef, which will require great research on my part to pull off, and with research and inexperience comes risk and $$$$.

On the freshwater side, I have some very nice driftwood pieces and beautiful silk leaf vines that are just going to waste. These would make a great backdrop to a live plant system. Live plants would also be a research project for me, because it has been nearly 10 years since my last live plant FW systems. The brain is a little rusty!

I could also move my 54 reef into the 90 and make the 54 a new setup.

Kymmie- I have no experience with Sea Dragons. I have also seen them at public aquariums, but this is about the extent of it.

What bout a nice heavely rock scaped african cichlid tank. A 90 would look awsome with lace rocks on one end. Some driftwood in the mid. and planted on the other end wow the posibilitys. Some yellows labs, red zebras, ect. Just my opinion.

Ahhh... my younger years. I spent the first 5 years of my addition to fish messing around with African's in some way or another. I would never consider going back, unless it were a Tanganyika display. Perhaps some shell dwelling species.

I love the shell dwellers. They're on my list of small tanks I want one day along with a mantis shrimp.

I'm liking the idea of moving the reef to the 90 and using the 54 for a new display. More room for your reef and a nice shape for a freshwater tank.
