What do you think?

Getting ready to cycle my new 55 gallon tank, still trying to figure out what's gonna go in this big gal!
I'd really like to have an albino rainbow shark, was wondering if i had two if there would be enough room in there for both of them to have their space? or should i just stick with one?
well either way, the albino rainbow shark is a must :)
was also thinking about a tiger pleco... :D
what other fish do you think could work in my tank?
there are a few nice hiding places, smooth gravel substrate, plenty of fake plants ...

yeah... any ideas? :)

Stick with only one shark and do provide plenty of hiding places so the rest of the planned bottom dwellers will not be harassed too much. What is the L-number of the tiger plec?

Rasboras, tetras and danios will work. Which species you want is up to you. Check the sticky threads of some sections and we'll help you sort them out further once you have the list of your favorite fish.

Live plants are better than fake plants. Vallisnerias, Elodea densa, hornwort, Java moss and pennyworts are undemanding.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I think what i might do is have the shark, some barbs, and danios. along with the pleco (L-002). it might have a different name? i'm sure it must because i don't see the name 'tiger pleco' often?

I've look up the L-number. It's the fact that common names are shared by several species that really annoys me which is why I often suggest the use of codes and scientific names if there really is for most species. It looks quite a nice pleco though and should fit in the tank if most sources are true to their word that it grows up to 5 inches only.

Filament barbs, Odessa barbs, giant danios, zebra danios and pearl danios are good additions to the tank. Rasbora boraptensis is a very active species as well. Other alternatives are Rasbora trilineatus. Some Rasbora heteromorpha can't be that bad.
