ok, so i got a 50 gallon that was gonna be used as a saltwater originaly, but it was just to much money so i decided to go to freshwater. this tank will have a wet dry trickle filter or a custom made filter under the tank since this has an overflow. in total it will have 70 gallons, but only 50 gallons of swimming room.
so my question is, what would you put in the tank. i know this is very broad but i just cant chose. i first thought discus, but then that would be almost as much as a salwater tank lol. then i thought a cichlid tank, but i cant find a cichlid that will fit in my tank, i would love a colony of some fronts or something like that, but its just not possible..... my next thought was a tank FULL of neon tetras and cories because they come in such beautifull colors. if i was to do this i would most likely have around 30 black neon tetras and like 20-30 cories but the bad thing with this is that they are just so small fish that they would go right over the overflow, i know i could put a cover on it though. A couple other ideas i had were a school of silver dollars, but they eat plants, a bunch of tiger barbs and some plecos, but they are very aggressive.
anyways, if you like one of my ideas please tell me which one, and if you have your own idea dont hessitate to share!!!!
