That's a mighty cool tank!
I'll be no help because anytime I see a large tank I only think "sorority" or "grow out" hehe

I might be getting a 55 long, in which I'm going with Piranhas. You can only get 3 though. they kinda need 20 gallons a piece.

But they are schooling fish. I think you need more than three

I see a 55 as a grow out... o.o

Frog community! Paludarium! Well that's what I'd do.
I think you should get something with loaches!

If I had that tank I'd put a couple of convict cichlids and a Jack dempsy or a pair of firemouths in it. Or it would make a killer planted tank with a school of rainbow fish.

lol, well i dont breed, so a grow out is not an option... And i have already considered the sorority idea... I have a small one started in a twenty long downstairs, with guppies, loaches, cories and ADF... i could expand on that and put it in the 55, but i would have to first really get it planted and grown in well before i could put the sorority in it...

I might do ciclids, i wouldnt mind a rock scape in there with some really pretty ones... I have also thought really hard about a pair of Oscars or something similar...

I have also been very tempted to try my hand at goldfish again... I just dont know! XD It would make an awesome planted tank, fill up the back corner with plants and leave like six inches clear in the front... So many choices!!

Here is a new picture of the tank in my house! and an appearance of my three year old. lol

So...Have you decided yet?

That is such a cool tank, I can't wait to see what you do with it.

P.S.: Your little girl is adorable!
