What's your community aquarium? What you have now, what you plan to do, your dream 1

I just thought it would be interesting if people said what all they have in their community aquariums; species, decorations, size, anything else you want to include. And if you don't have one, you can put what you are planning, or your dream community.

I'll go first.

In process: 75 gallon, bogwood and fake plants (including floating plants): 10 Harlequin Rasboras, 10 Panda Cories, 11 Neon Tetras, 10 Marbled Hatchetfish.

Dream Community: A bunch of rainbowfish species.

I am just finishing setting up my first "real" tank after years of 10 or 20 gallon ones. I have a planted 65 gallon and feel it's my First Tank. I have it planted on the right with rocky caves on the left. I have 18 neon tetras, a golden chinese algae eater and a green algae eater, an otto and a spotted cory. I had some driftwood that I purchased from my LFS and got a weird whitish film trailing off it, so I took it out. My substrate is medium rock, large rock gravel, large gravel and crushed white riverstone.

Dream Tank: 120 gallon cichlid tank, maybe electric blues and electric yellows. I've heard of people adjusting brackish puffers in this combination, maybe angels as well.

Dream Tank 2: 60 gallon, fast current with bubble wall for seahorses, with dwarf ochraceous seastars.

My dream tank? 300gl reef with many assorted tangs & triggers.
(tangs + triggers + reef = impossible!) You said "dream" tanks.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
