Update: I love my tank again! The tank has undergone a major rescape and looks just how I want it too...plants will look awesome once everything fills in! Thanks to some very kind and helpful folks at TPT I am loving my tank again
The Roseline Sharks are gone and we will have 25 Diamond Tetras here next week. They will be added to the main tank after being in QT for awhile. More Kuhli Loaches too. Things are good again
If you'd like to see, I have pictures of the rescape here: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=195675

|driftwoodhunter||I'm going tomorrow to buy up all the Gold Tetras my lfs has on bogo Monday, but it will be torture to walk past the Diamond Tetras! I haven't had any Diamond Tetras yet, but the color is so outstanding they are a definite. I need a larger QT tank for them first...I don't know how well they shoal/school, but I can't imagine you'd be disappointed with their beauty.|

Update November 11, 2012:
I wanted to share that I am nearly decided on fishies Here is where I'm at as of today. If you have any concerns from experiences you've had with these fish, please don't hesitate to share with me! I have been eliminating fish from the choices based off what others have told me about the species behavior. I have eliminated thus far Lemon Tetras, Bloodfin Tetras and more Angels.
2 Angelfish, 1 Female Round Tail Betta and I will be adding 8 Kuhli Loach...everyone else in the family wants to try them again
The prospective species left from my long list are Diamond Tetras, Espei Rasboras mixed with Harlequin Rasboras and have been thinking about adding a small group of shoaling species such as RedBack Bleeding Hearts and/or Rosy Tetras.

I am all mixed up about what I'm going to do with mine LOL! I have drawn up about 30 layouts and still keep thinking of something different. I am the most undecisive person I know! I am constantly changing my mind or tweeking things in every aspect of my life! I can't ever seem to just sit still and enjoy. It's a horrible hitch I am one of those that is all-over-the-place. I've got too many "loves". For example, I can see a Dutch Style and a Iwagumi style; complete opposites and equally "love" both of them if the layout is appealing to me.
There are a few tanks on here that top out on my love list. Yours is most definetely one of them!

You're so kind! Really, by the standards of the other big tanks I see here, my is pretty crappy yet. But I like it and that's what counts, right? lol It's slow going but I prefer a low tech, slowly evolving tank - I have no interest in fast growth, constant pruning, etc. heck, I have 1600 square feet of terrestrial gardens outside, I have enough maintenance to do! This tank has no Co2, no ferts other than osmocote caps (and I'm way overdue on that) and the light is just a Home depot shop light with a 6500 and a 6700 for bulbs. It's an experiment!
I just got the crinum in the mail yesterday, we'll see if the fish start eating it. If so I'll have to move it to the 55s when they're set up...

I just saved this to my desktop so I could get a closer look. Breathtaking!

Took me a while to take a shot, but here it is, it's only a few months old and I have a lot to do to it yet. Being a low tech tank the growth is very, very slow, but I like it that way...
The crinum on the far left were just planted yesterday and will straighten out more, the clump of foating plants on the right is Brazilian Pennywort and it broke loose from the stems planted in the middle of the tank. It makes such a great floater that I'm going to leave it (although spread it out some)
