45 gallon 25"x18"x24" What should I do with it?

So I've got a 45 gallon tank that is 25"L x 18W x 24"H. I originally wanted to set it up salt with a sump but I am back in school fulltime and don't have the time or money to set up or maintain that. So now I'm kicking around all sorts of ideas in my head because I have no real vision of what I want this tank to be.

Here are the basics....
I've got a couple big HOB filters, an old canister filter, and a 500gph water circulation pump... Any of which I could use on this tank or a combo.

I've got a 24" dual lamp t5ho light that could be suspended above the tank.

I've got a little black onyx sand and some black diamond around. I could go just that or I guess I could use it to cap a soil/dirt set up.

I've been thinking live bearers, or drawf cichlids, or well, I really don't know...

I'd like to keep things fairly low tech & I'm not looking to spend much $$ on this project. I've already got a PFR shrimp tank and a 55 I'm going to keep GBRs in.

So does anyone have ideas, or suggestions? I'm open to all sorts of thoughts!

Help me TPT!

Pair of apistogramma or kribs maybe? You could probably put livebearers with them. I keep platies with my Bolivian ram.
