Due to a unidentified catastrophic disease I have to restock my 55 gallon tank it has been drained and cleaned and is up and running again with no fish. So this is where you come in I am kinda stumped as to what to put in the tank I need some inspiration. I have a 35 gallon community tank with all sorts of small fish and I would like another community tank with larger fish but I am open to any suggestions. So I know you guys have your next tank ideas let me hear them.

Thanks

I think a 55 gal. is a great size for a cichlid community tank. Here's a link with some cookie cutter suggestions:

I agree. If I had another tank to set up, I would give serious thought to cichlids.

Yeah I saw an all Discus tank and I was hooked. That's what I'm putting in my 55-75 Gal tank... when I buy one .

I think cichlids would be a good idea as well. If you don't want to do that, I am a big fan of rainbow fish. Have a few in my 75 gallon and they get along great with everything in there.

I echo this position - Discus are gorgeous, colorful fish. And they can cohabitate with a small number other species and plants - something rare in cichlids. You do have to be ready to commit to regular, large water changes and good husbandry.
