    I already have a planted community in my living room with various species and it looks amazing but I’ve just set up an office and want to showcase an impressive aquarium.. I’ve got a few ideas but want some opinions of some experienced pros

    What do you want? peaceful? Oddball? nano? cichlids?
    I would do the following.
    A Blackwater tank . floating plants, tall plants, moss and then like a 2-3ft opening in the middle.
    You could put some Discus, Neon, Embers, RCS(Put these in first and let the population grow to atleast 200), Kuhli Loaches, also some sort of top dweller.

    What are the dimensions? Is it 8' long, but only 12" wide? Or is it wide? If you have a wider tank, you may be able to get some more exotic, (possibly expensive) fish.
