Not sure yet. The 84g is 6' long x 15" wide footprint, so it would make a cool community tank. Its an odd size tank, I read on another site that that is a standard size aquarium in the UK, although I have never seen one before and cant seem to find them online anywhere.

I also have a breeding pair of Jack Dempsies sitting in a 10g that I may or may not keep. I'm kind of bored of the cichlids though. Although I've never bred them, so that would be a cool project. I'm super indecisive and cheap, so I'll probably put them in the 30g with "plans" to give them away.

I have never done a planted tank before, so I am most likely going to learn about it and try my first planted tank out. Who knows..

Hello and welcome to the forum

Have fun picking out your livestock. Makes me wish I had an empty tank to play with.

Idk, I've never named one of my tanks before. I was thinking of names when I began to add aquariums in the member tab.. hmmm.. I'll have to put some thought into it. I kind of like "Pandora" for the 84g.

I knowwwww, isn't that the best? Thats why I am taking my time with it. I think I may take down the 30g and add substrate, sand, and driftwood and get it planted first. I should get some pictures going. I am excited to get some new ideas on here as well.

Thank you guys for the warm welcome! This seems like the kind of place I was looking for, everyone seems really kind and helpful here.

hmm.. I don't think so. I'll post some pics in another thread when I get farther along and maybe we can find out. :)
