So I finally set up my 96g corner bow front tank. I have decorated it yet as I'm still deciding what I want to stick it with.

My idea is to do a rainbow tank...bunch of schools of different rainbows but part of me thinks I may get bored with that. I've considered african cichlids, especially since my pH is 8 here. I need some ideas!!

You could always do oddball fish - maybe a few ropefish or a bichir?

I love angels. You could always do an angel-themed tank!

I see on your other thread you are using a canister filter with this. Is that still the plan? If so, what make and model is it canister, or do you happen to know how much GPH it does? That will directly impact what stocking would be appropriate for the tank.

It came with the tank. He ran salt water for years with it. Would be be wise to add a second filter or just find one with 500+ gph?

What type of fish are you looking for? Schooling, oddball, large, small, etc?

I like community tanks normally. Not much for the oddball stuff. And I don't want anything that gets too big either. I'd rather be able to house a larger number of fish.

I like some rainbows, but part of me wants to give Africans a go. I don't know what to do!! lol

How about a big school of Boesemani Rainbowfish to start? They get to like 5" I think. So you could do maybe about 10-15 of them.

Do you have a pic of the tank? What are the dimensions?

I don't have the dimensions in front of me but I think it's 24 high and about 48 from side to side at the corners.

I am thinking Congo tetras for your tank but if mine are the considered the norm, they're not very active like some other tetras I've seen, like neons or cardinals. They just kind of stand around and watch the danios swim around them in loops...

I have a krib in my 75 and love him. I do want an apisto. Was going to get a cacatoo for my 75 but got a ram instead. Don't think I should chance another cichlid in there. I could do rainbows and an apisto pair in this one and then find some other nice schooling fish.

I've never had congos but they do look cool.

Wait... if you have a 75g community tank, why would you want to be redundant? lol... African cichlids it is!

Just when I thought we had it figured out! LOL. I know nothing about compatibility with Africans but it would make for a pretty tank. I love peacocks. Saw some yellow ones the other day
