Dream fish tanks
I thought we could have some fun here...
What is your dream fish tank that you wish you could have some day?
I have two. For some reason, I always loved bottom feeders, more than other kinds of fish. Hey always have so much personality! So, I thought it would be amazing to have a custom made bottom feeder tank. It would be maybe 50 gallons, something big, but instead of a regular box shape it would be really short and more narrow. About the height of a standard 10g or maybe a little bit less, the width of a 20 gallon, and really long. This would give it a large footprint and it could house way more of these fish than a regular 50 gallon. I could have lots of different cories, peaceful loaches, otos, and more!
My second dream tank:
I have always loved big schools of tiny fish. I so want to get a big huge aquarium and fill it with a few large schools and shoals of fish. Some that I like are neon tetras, marble hatchetfish, and dwarf cories. Etc.
I am looking forward to hearing your ideas, whatever they may be! Thank you!

I want to do a decent size tank, not even huge, full of tiny fish. Tons of Boraras and Sundadanio axelrodi, then some bigger fish like fire rasboras and Hengels rasboras plus dwarf hovering loaches and all the different Pangios I could find. Then some chocolate gouramis and licorice gouramis.

Well that's just one idea and the closest to what I have now. I actually have a ton of different tanks I'd like to do.

I have my dream tank although it is empty at the moment. It is a Perfecto 220g which I am going to be making into a mixed reef sometime (soon hopefully).

I have a saltwater tank (see my signature), cichlid tank is an option possibly if it turn out to be too much doing the saltwater tank.

Oh, glad to hear you creating you dream to reality:) good luck! Honestly, I wouldn't ever want a huge reef. I have a 2.5 gallon reef and it is absolutely perfect. I could never ask for anything better.
I look forward to seeing yours though! I love big reef tanks for other people...
