    What do you want in the fish your tank will contain? What sorta idea do you want? Community? Predators? Rift lake? Single species?

    Haven't quite made up my mind yet, but would like a community type tank that can breed, liked the look of a Tang set up with shellies and gobies etc also want plants though but like I said haven't made up my mind yet:confused:

    30 guppies, will fill out the tank in no time haha.

    A tang tank would be good, there are people selling shell dwellers here and there :)

    Amazon biotope... South American cichlids...

    They are usually mild mannered and a big variety to chose from, tank is nice and big with ample space for a nice scape and a good variety of them...

    As I said earlier in the thread, I think a Tang community will look fantastic in there :)

    O wow, I can just imagine stocking your tank :lol: Everyone always want to go big fish with big tank but it's so been done. I would LOVE to have a tank that size filled with all the amazing community fish we have. I think a clown loach community tank is an awesome idea! Have a look at this

    @Dinky.. you are very right.. I have seen some absolutely amazing clown loach tanks

    When there are a lot of them and lots of space they actually active and playful all the time

    At London zoo's Mekong mega tank there was an amazing school. Tank must have been 8m long, 2m wide and 2.5m high. They probably had about 30-50 small clown loaches in there and how they schooled and swam was absolutely beautiful!
