The future 55 gallon is going in the living room. The main goal of the tank is to have a planted freshwater tank. It would need to be stocked with beginner fish, but I would like them to be interesting or interactive. I want the tank to be easy to maintain for my parents, but also nice to look at. They like some of the underwater, bubble river decorations and some of the generic resin decor. I don't know how I could mix that into a planted tank. I'm thinking of having 30+ scissortail rasboras as I've heard from aquariumcoop that if you have a big enough school they will follow your hand. I wanted to do multiple smallish fish schools to create interest, but I don't know how that would work with such a big school of scissortails. I'd like to include an "oddball fish" like a hatchet fish school or, purely as an example, some whip tail catfish. My mom is attracted to the black skirt tetras and some of the more "prettier" looking fish, but my dad doesn't seem to have a preference. Any ideas on stocking, decor, and plants would be greatly appreciated!
