    Amazon biotope? Do it up with sand and some big bogwood roots. Lots of plants. A herd of cories and loads of tetras, maybe a pair of angelfish.

    All that depth. Bottom dwellers would love it.

    Whatever you decids, enjoy!

    I'm jealous. I've got a bad case of upgrade fever, but this isn't really the best time for it. Enjoy that lovely tank!

    So stocking ideas so far I already have 3 angles in another tank to go in along with 2 blue Rams and 1 electric blue ram, going to get some cardinal tetras but not sure what else

    Three is never a good number for angels. I would either rehome one, or get a fourth. But that would be getting a bit crowded.

    Do you have any bottom dwellers? I would suggest a shoal of cories. And maybe a BN pleco :)

    Cories and Rams get along fine. The occasional chase but nothing the cories can easily escape (as in move a few inches away).
