Stocking ideas? :)

I think cories are a good idea, and some neon tetras. What are you using for light? It looks uneven, too much in the center but not a lot on the sides.

couldn't agree more as to the neon suggestion. i'd get a dozen and call it a day.

very unique tank, in a good way!

I'd keep some cories and some danio. They don't really need deep tanks as they pretty much stay in the top 6 inches or so.
Also they produce very little waste, so bio load wise you can keep quite a few.
Cories I would put in would be C. duplicarius or C. adolfoi... just because they are pretty as all heck.

I'm using a Aqueon T8 Flourescent lamp. I noticed that the position of the hood over the tank combined with the lid makes the front and corners of the tank look dark. I got the full hood and 20 gallon tank from my LFS for $25 so I wasn't going to complain. For my low light plants it seems to be working just fine

Well they can do with a 4' tank, but mine seemed to do ok in the 3' one they were in before.
