Tyyr's Tanks

I recently got a great deal on a 48 gallon corner tank and my wife convinced me to move the contents of my 55 gallon over. Gotta say, I'm liking it.

Ohhh...I like it :) So, here's the question: what are you going to do with that empty 55?

Cool tank! I really like the corner hex tanks a lot more than the corner bowfront ones. So yeah...the question on everyone's minds...what's gonna happen with the 55g?

Current Inhabitants:
2 Mickey Mouse Platys
9 Neon Tetras
4 Female Fancy Guppies
3 Panda Cories
3 Amano Shrimp

On the list for the tank are:
7 Serpae Tetras, currently in quarantine
~3-4 more Panda Cories
1 Red Tailed Black Shark
~3-5 more Amano Shrimp
3 more Neon Tetras

The 55 gallon I'm not 100% sure of just yet. Apparently I'm not mature enough just yet as an aquarist to no longer like community tanks. I'm thinking rummy nose tetras, harlequin rasboras, some type of gourami and cory and a pair of German blue rams.

Your 55gal stocking plan sounds great. I love rummynose, corys & rams.
