Today I am going to pick up my 50 hex that I have been talking about
for a while. It's a ugly white color (the trim part) so i am going to spray paint it Black later on tonight. I also am not going to set it up until I buy a stand for it. which I will do In the next few days.

To cycle I am going to use my Platties...and my filter cartridge from my already established 10 gallon to get some Benificial Bacteria.

Stocking Scheme:(needs Help)
I already know I want a few angels and thats all I got so far.....
Any Ideas for the Scheme will help.

Thanks in Advance.

(Yes, I know I have asked this Many times in the past but this is for Real now)

Oh and Pictures will be posted of the entire process.

well you could fit about 35 inches of fish mass there, is it a tall hex or a long hex since its all about surface area....

2 angelfish (8 inch mass, total of 16 inch mass)
3 platies (2 inch mass, total of 6 inch mass)
4 bolivian rams (3.5 inch mass, total of 14 inch mass)

thats what you should get. angels will be top-mid dwellers, platies will be more mid dwelling but also all round tank. Rams bottom dwelling. 36 inch mass, its perfect :)
