Okay guys, I am 99.9% sure what I want to do with the 55 gallon now. After much soul searching, I have decided that cichlids are not for me. After briefly considering selling the 55 gallon, I realized that I am super inspired by @Auquaphobia's beta sorority. I know they can be risky, but my hope is that in a 55 well planted tank things will work out. Here is the learning curve: I know nothing about planted tanks. Can anyone point me to a good resource on that? Also, the first issue is finding a spot for the tank. Could I place it by a window? Is that good/bad/indifferent for plants? I know algae will grow, so what is the possibility of having some type of algae eater (BN Pleco perhaps?) with the girls? Too risky? Sooo many questions...but really excited.
