| || | 55gal JD tank
i have a jack dempsey and a pictus catfish in a 35gal tank and i think its a bit to small
my uncle has a nice 55gal long tank that i can get for free, im probably getting it today.
when i get it what should i put in it?
i have some nice play sand but i dont think there is enough, about half a 50lb bag. i can get another at home depot though.
i need some suggestions on some stuff, what other fish could i put with them (if i can)? what type of habitat do they originate from? what filter is a good filter for $100 or under (not fond of HOB)? are guppies a good treat for a JD? will a 20" 60watt light be enough (i dont plan on plants)? if not what would make the colors pop the most? any ideas on decore? i like the natural look, no fake plants or mini sunken ships. i was planning on having a bunch of rocks forming caves with some pieces of driftwood sitting around.
