Stocking Ideas?!

I got a 44 gal pentagon aquarium off of facebook for $25

I dont know what to stock it with. Its such an odd shape.

Ive never had a tank this big either lol Its going to take forever to cycle this one.

Keep Sweet <3

You have so many options, I couldn't be more envious.

Personally, I have had enough with fish fighting eachother in my sorority lol I want to do an all peaceful, schooling tank. Platys, guppies, etc. Maybe some corys.

It sounds like its one of those tanks that's a lot taller than it is wide. Might stay away from ADFs, they have issues with taller tanks. I don't know how mine hasn't knocked himself out yet xD

You can do a pair of Angelfish (or just one) and then some larger Tetras like Black Phantoms, Red Phantoms, Serpae, Longfin Serpae, Diamond, Black Emperor's. Or Emerald eye Rasboras, Cardinal Tetras, Bleeding Heart Tetra, Penguin Tetra. Or you can go with the Barbs and do Tigers, Cherry Barbs, Rosy Barb, Odessa Barb, Black Ruby Barbs. Though if you go with barbs, remember that most of them (except Cherries) are semi-aggressive so you could do a larger Gourami for a centerpiece fish or something along those lines.

Wilds: Wajok, Rutilans, Siamentorialis, Hendra
Leopards: Luna, Astrael, Dorian, Cullen, Gallifrey
Gargoyle: Cloudjumper
African Fat Tails: Nox and Lux
Bearded Dragon: Stormfly
