Hey there!

I’m new to the aquarium scene. I’m setting up an 180 gallon unplanted freshwater tank in the waiting area of my vet clinic. It will be viewable from front, back and one end. Wondering which type of fish get along together. Looking for ideas on number and species of fish to keep. Looking for fish that are low maintenance and hardy, hence the absence of live plants, as this is my first tank and my employees will be the ones mostly looking after the tank. Thanks in advance for your help.

Maybe a nice big piece of driftwood in the middle with a dark substrate.
For fish maybe a variety of rainbow fish would be cool in a big tank like that. Tons of different colors out there and super active. they school around all day long and fun to feed.

I second the Malawi's but you can successfully keep peacocks and haps in their in a big tank too. Maybe some hardier plecos as well.
