I just bought me a 48 gallon tank that my friend had laying around 2 hoods with lights and a marineland penguin 350 filter for $40.

Tell me about it! We were talking about how my son wanted a fish and now we have 14, so after 15 minutes talking about it, he tells me that his that left a 48 gallon tank with filter so he ask me if i wanted to buy it for $20 but i felt that was kind of ripping him off so i offer him $40 and everybody happy.
I just finish cleaning it so, i am gonna put the fish i already have (1 betta, 3 spotted cory and 3 albino cory, 4 platy and 3 south american bumblebee catfish) Maybe you guys can help me figure out how to stock it and the best substrate.
WOAH! Where abouts do you live again..? ;) Just kidding!

Buying from friends is the best deal!
You are so lucky!
My wish is to get a tank larger than 29g...
If it were my tank, I'd fill it with driftwood and tons of live plants, and then I would get a school of colorful mid level water column fish such as neons or ember tetras...they get along well w/cories and they aren't manic enough to bother a betta and make him resort to violence.
I've been thinking about a planted tank but i don't know if i am ready for it.
Sounds like it could be a great project, I'm sure your fish will love it!
Post pictures once its set up!! It will look great I bet
