problemmans~prehistoric forest

prehistoric forest came to mind when i came i was thinking bout some fish i would love to add to the future tank i plan to setup with in the next month or two when we get to our new apartment. i plant to setup a tank anywhere from 55-120 prob a happy medium with a 75.

the plans for this tank is to yes make it a forest. the way prehistoric came about from the fish list which would be:

a school of thread fin rainbow fish
a school of glass catfish
also a black ghost knife that is in our 55 now that we need to move.

i was maybe thinking of adding some African butterfly fish for the surface but i fear the rainbows would be eaten by them so maybe no. i also thought bout adding hatchet fish.

bottom level would be some sort of catfish idk yet.

plants would be close to forest as possible. some bolbitis, java ferns, fissidens and other moss, vals, crypts, and anubias. so this tank will be some what low tech and moderate lighting.

let me know what u think

I think you should feature petrified wood, too, just to complete the effect.
