Once we get the 125G for the Oscars and them my mom moves her saltwater tank into the 75g [oscars tank] then Ill tank her 55g saltwater tank and use it as a 4th tank in my "apartment". Of course Ill wash it first.
I would like it to be a lower cost tank. With not as high of lighting and such.

Im looking for a colorful, less threatening community tank. As I already have a 55g Kribensis Community tank. Which the kribs obevously rule

Im looking to add for sure some of the cute cory cats, and maybe some rainbows or lemon tetras or cardianal tetras. Along with some type of "main" fish or a few species of fish that are some what easy to breed. Along with some type of algea eater maybe Oto's or something I do not already have.
I would like some low light nice looking plants. Any suggestions??

Also I would like to have some nice plant rich subtrate. Maybe something other then Eco Complete as I have that in the other 55G and I could see if there is a difference in them.

So in summary Im looking for:
-Some nice peaceful colorful fish
-some fish that can be breed [not livebarers?]
-Some nice ground fish [cory cats, loaches]
-A nice schooling fish
-Nice low light plants
-a good, rich subtrate

Low light plants:
Anubias
Cryptocoryne
Egeria
Microsorium
Lemnaeae
Vallisneria

New substrate to try:
Fluorite is nice and expensive
Soilmaster Select looks a lot like Eco but is a lot cheaper:smile:

Fish to try and breed in captivity:
Tetras
Rainbows
Assorted SA Cichlids
Assorted African Cichlids (other than the Kribs you already have)
Plecostomus

Nice schooling fish:
Cardinals
Harlequin Rasboras

This should help get you started. There are many more options but these were just a few off the top of my head.
