considering its a tall tank i would try to utilize the height........Do you like angelfish or discus?.........They would do really well in a tall tank of that size and you could also go with some of the larger type bottom feeders...Great find on the tanks!..........Congrats!

+one for Discus and or Angelfish. Lots of driftwood,maybe some leaf litter, sand substrate,and a whole gaggle of corydoras.

Amazing deal! gratz! I'm envious, of course. I dunno about what you like but recently I've been hearing about ripariums... half water half air type setups. If I had a big tank I'd be really tempted to have a little waterfall at one end and a jungle stream bank thingy goin... oh wow I just remembered archer fish. wouldn't those be cool in a riparium. Have fun!

Thank you craiglist. lol Thanks for all the good info guys. I do have angles. But them discus Might be the way to go. Wher do you find them the lfs dont get them in around here. IF he orders them there like 50-60 a piece. Is that normale?

actually depending on the species, thats not a real bad price

Were it me, I would try and purchase adult Discus. I have raised them from the size of fifty cent pieces to adults and the young fish really need several small feedings a day to achieve their potential. This means frequent small water changes to keep organic levels to a minimum.
Adult fish on the otherhand,can be fed twice daily and weekly water changes will suffice in my expieriences with them.I might also recommend that the fish be purchased as a group but realize that not all can afford to do so. I am one of those people.
I purchased mine quite young and added one fish each payday until I had a group of six. Not much more appealing to the eye in my view ,than a tank with a group of Discus gliding about.
