30g hex stocking suggestions
Well a friend of mine tells me today that tomorrow night he is going to deliver to me a 30g hex aquarium with a stand. S C O R E :D for free! free is the best price for me, because im so broke I cant afford to pay attention lol ANYWAY...

what do you guys think would be good options for a 30g hex? I know its taller than it is wide, he seems to think its 30" tall and about 24" wide, but not exactly sure.

but i was just wondering what would go well in such a big tank with so little swimming space.

dwarf puffer fish ?

you could probably do like some platys and mollies.

LOL willow, no sandy? I could make a little scuba set for a squirrel, though I might get bit lol but its a 30g hex, not a 3g hex, I could get something that takes up a little more room than a 1" dp :)

Get some nice driftwood, and some good sized round rocks. Put down a sand bottom then some boiled beech or oak leaves. Put in a banjo cat, a pair of apistos, and about a dozen pencilfish.

Fill it about half way, and set it up so you can grow some tropical plants around the edges inside the tank. Use a cannister filter to create a waterfall, and an arrangement of rocks to make sure that it doesn't create a big current. Put a pair of Betta coccina in there.
