    Hey guys, I just purchased a 55gallon tank. These are pictures of it from the seller before they cleaned it out.

    In not sure what type of stocking I want to do I'm thinking predator tank , and what type of freshwater predator fish can I put in there , tank mates as well, if I can have any. The cooler looking, the better.

    I would prefer more predator, thinking sharks or maybe an eel, or some sort of catfish. If I do go with cichlids I would like to get blue acara's and Jack Dempseys

    There are no predetory sharks for a 55 gallon. The bala sharks in the picture need a much larger tank. I just got a rainbow shark and it eats algae more then anything.

    You could possibly do rose line sharks/ torpedo barbs. they look cool but arent predetary.

    which leaves -
    Golden wonder killi fish
    African butterfly fish - wich may need to be fed crickets.
    Puffers?
