Talking 70 gal tank!

My boyfriend's brother has a massive 70 gallon tank that he doesn't use anymore. He used to keep a large oscar in it. Right now he's debating on whether to sell it to us for cheap or just to give it to us.. I'm sooo excited! But I just don't know what to do with it? So many options with that enormous tank.. The ultimate betta sorority? That was my first idea. I'm just hoping when I get home for summer my boyfriend will let me take over the tank..cuz I'm pretty sure he wants to start a salt water aquarium with a bunch of fish he'll have no idea how to care for! Anyways, does anyone have any other ideas for the tank? I'm gonna go crazy decorating it. :)

Oh my gosh!! SOOOO jealous!!! I'd defiantly do a sorority!!!!

If I had a tank like that, I'd use all live plants and make it look really natural. But, I just love planting tanks... so do whatever you want to do!

What an awesome find I hope you get it for Free.....and I vote planted, I love the planted tanks, do you have lights, you can set up lights for a planted tank pretty cheap by getting the 48in shop lights and daylight 6500k 40w bulbs for about 20 bucks, that is what I use over my 75g, I use two of them to give me 4 bulbs for more wpg.
I also do the natural planted tanks soil based, low tech, low cost, I don't want to mess with CO2, ferts and all that...lol....

I know his tank had lighting, I'm not sure the specifics. But I'm gonna save that info just in case I need to get lights. And low tech, low cost sounds good to me! So i'll probably try the soil based idea. Thanks!

If you want to do saltwater, all you have to do is look no further than TropicalFishKeeping.com. There are all kinds of people there to help you get started, but saltwater tanks are very expensive to start and maintain. But, yeah, a humongous sorority would be nice. lol

I vote for a sorority too! My dad has a 55G with all salt water and they are so expensive! Fish are like $60 and up. They're gorgeous, but unless you have the money to spend on them, I wouldn't recommend it.

I really want to make my 50 gallon into a sorority, but I can't afford all the plants right now. So I'm turning mine into a community tank with a bunch of little fishies. If you have the money though, I would deff do a sorority. :D
