What to do with 90 Gallon Tank

I have 90 gallon tank, that about 1 year old and been sitting in my garage for 3 months not being used, no luck selling. I want to bring it back in and setup with something simple, wife says no way, we don't need another tank.

What would be the least expensive setup? I already have canister filter, heater, gravel, T5 light. It really nice setup with hood/canopy as well. I was thinking shrimp, need to do what going to be cheapest for plants etc.

Or leave it sit in the garage

Thoughts?


My primary tank 125 right now is setup as community tank.

give it to me? I've also got a 90 in the garage but it's an older tank and has some chips.

i'm also in PA my girlfriend would also be very angry if i brought home a 90g, so it'd be pretty funny

I was gonna say discus, until I saw the word "cheapest."

That's be an epic shrimp tank! Water wisteria, hornwort, cabomba are all cheap, easy to keep plants, plus different kinds of moss. Maybe get an amazing piece of drifttwood and moss it up!

I'm a girl and my argument is "what's one more tank??" No big deal

Would be very cool shrimp tank!, Do you know anywhere that sells those plants local? I am in Raleigh, moved here a few years ago from PA. Most of the time I just order online.

I just moved here myself, been here 3 months. Petsmart/Petco may have them, also try The Fish Room in Cary or Raleigh (they have a nice selection of freshwater fish, small selection of plants) and Aquarium Outfitters in Wake Forest has some plants. To be honest, online may be your best bet!

Set up the 90g and harvest plants from your 125g to help get the 90g going. Then, whenever you want to buy something for the 90g, get it for the 125g. Then use the 90g to 'save' the 125g from overcrowding.

Seriously, you can use your 125g to get the 90g going with plants. Add some crypts, and you should be set. As far as fish, you could always add live bearers and let them populate the tank.
