Hey...

As some of you know, a friend of mine very kindly donated a 200 gallon tank that he didn't use.

It's *almost* cycled, but being of the 'not very creative' type, I need suggestions for a theme.

The tank is being used as a display tank in the bar area of my pub...

I thought the same thing.

The problem is, it won't just be me taking care of the tank (I have 6 staff working for me), so I need something hard to kill...

Is there anything that you could do that corresponds with the name or environment of your pub?

well...

the pub is called the Moderation, so probably nothing suitable from that.

It's 5 minutes walk from one of the the biggest rock festivals in the UK and 2 minutes walk from a river, so there may be something there

Perhaps you could have a lot of plants and rock caves and one large centerpiece rock with "The Moderation" engraved somehow into it very big. I think that sounds really cool

Could always set up bottles and mugs to bubble

Both of those sound really interesting

Endless possibilities, especially with a 2oo gallon

Tell me about it...

I wandered round my LFS for 2 hours today. I wanted to buy EVERYTHING!

Also talked a woman who was keeping a Betta in a 1 gallon bowl to buy it a 10 gallon tank, a light, heater, live plants, etc

Yes, you can really tell how much of a personality the fish has when it isn't in a tiny container. Actually, mine showed me where 2 of my Cory lay dead, and it was pretty weird how it showed me...

Well, when I walked over to the tank it swam frantically around the dead fish and kept looking back and forth between me and the cory

Rob sounds terribly exciting. Just a note though, don't put anything metal (like metal mugs) How about all kinds of caves and one with a little sign over it with the pubs name on it.
Cichlids are really hard to kill so there's one suggestion. Hum... Would be gorgeous with Discus in it too. ...and Angels ...and...... aaarrrggghhh I would be crazy by now!!!! Have fun and keep us posted.

I am Jealous If I had a 200 I would get a shark. LoL. Must be about 8 foot long.??? I hope it has cement floor to it. Would weigh over 2000 pounds. That's amazing. How about some bala sharks, pict cats, and some irradant sharks. It's really endless what you could do with this. LIVE plants of course?

sounds like fun what about a pirahana and you could have feeding times to attract people or an oscar and do the same thing and you could get a common pleco
