GIIIIIIIAAAAANNNTTTT sorority!
As many fish as you can fit in there xD
OR

Just a single black Crowntail male....completely fill the bottom with sand, then put a ton of old broken-looking Roman column decorations in a rectangular-shape. Seeing the fish drift about eerily in that setting would be AWESOME.
But you'd need a strong light to set that off!

7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats


Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail

Oscars would hardly have room in that... I can imagine a sorority. And if you WERE breeding, you'd be happy right now!

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

The tank is 20 inches deep, 4 feet along the face and the sides are just shy of 3 feet each, and it is 25 inches from the back corner to the face of the glass. Lmao!!

I still don't know what do with it. I probably am not doing cichlids though, but angels do sound like a lot of fun though. Lol

Yes a few bad suggestions coming in but I'll see what Giz is interested in instead of shooting things down pointlessly.

Angels are fun! I was going to do them for my 75, disappointed that I'm not somewhat.

I remember a partial discussion of the frogs in the ADF thread - hehe... would still love to see that, though I could completely understand not dedicating an *entire* 55 gal to frogs.

Have you had any ideas at all as to what you would honestly like? Perhaps it'd help to make a list of your favourite and/or dream species and cross them off as you see what isn't suited for the tank size, then see where you can go from there?

A group of angel fish would be so happy in a tank that size.. and it would be ideal for breeding if you wanted to try.

Of course, if you feel like going salt water, you could fill it with sea horses...

So many options.. you're so lucky!

I deffinately do not have the time or money for salt water tanks. Lol!! But angels sound fun, would they pick on guppies, cories, ADFs, and kuhli loaches? I can keep my sorority in another tank...

The angels may pick on the guppies a bit, but IME angels will get along with most anything as long as they were raised with them. I like to go to the store and get the smallest ones. Therefore they will be used to the fish that surround them and usually won't pick on them. However there are cases where this won't happen. But I'd give it a go. I love my 2 angels, and I'd suggest to do them

The best way to help is to be forgiving. People aren't made with a book of ultimate information in their head. We need to inform, not insult; give advice, not lectures; and realize we're all human and we all make mistakes

Olympia the only reason why I suggested it is I see a lot of people doing that, the problem that I know is that angels sometimes eat smaller fish.

I love the look of angels though, wish I had room for an actual aquarium, not all this tiny stuff lol.
