There are many types of...

Those new Oceanic cubes look nice! When I finally saw a JBJ Nanocube in person, I have to admit it was a bit anticlimatic. Not so with the Oceanics. I think I want one!

Discus are most definitely pushing it.

Rainbowfish are plant safe for sure. I wouldn't choose most rainbows due to the max size they'll achieve, but definitely take a look at Praecox Rainbows. ...

I'm a rebel, I have no neons.

I have ember tetras. They're awesome. Not nearly as common, and just really cool little fish. Max size is one inch and, while they can look on the bland side in...

Myself I would choose just one of those groups of tetras. Have a nice school of a single type of tetra and it will have a nicer impact in the overall look of your tank. That's not to say you can't...

I agree with Jen. The dimensions you describe are essentially a 55G, just a bit taller. I have a 55G right now, and I can't wait until I can set up my new tank. 55G just isn't the best option for...
