Well here is the 55 gallon I am working with... My mom and I need somewhere for our angels to go...




Here are the plans I drew up this morning...




As for fish there will be 5 angels; 2 altum, 2 black marble,and a yellow/white marble looking one.

I also want to add either a school of black neons, cardnals or harlequin rasboras(sp.sorry:hihi: )

Please let me know what you think...

Thanks!

wow that looks like a great idea! i'd really like to see that happen. you're not gonna use aquasoil or flourite or something along those lines?

i used to have this same tank but i used it for a salt water set up. i miss it :(

No I am just going to use rregular old peagravel type stuff... I was given this tank on one condition... NO SALTWATER... I guess I am fine with that since I like planted tanks MUCH better than any marine I've seen before..!

Ok so here is a little update...

I went to the gravel yard and Thought I would pay maybe $10 for 2 buckets of gravel and ended up that he only wanted to charge me $3 and all I had to pay with was the plastic soo... longstory short I got free gravel.

Here is a size comparison of the gravel for Rex.

Here is the tank.

Thanks...

I am going to hold off on planting it until next payday so I can just get all the plants at once...

I am going the easy route with a shop light and 215watters so @wpg it is. I still want bright red and dwarf hairgrass... I am not sure what else yet though...

Any tips or ideas ?

Thanks guys!
