    thinking about making a cold water Hoth tank what do you think?
    Usually go for a natural look but a Hoth tank would just look so cool

    Dude, go for it. Would be epic. What would you stock it with?

    Nice. What size will the tank be? Assuming you do it.

    40 probably

    Maybe 55 if I get the dojos

    I can't find any Star Wars tank ornaments though

    There's a way to make legos fish safe, but legos are a bit pricey. If you have cash, it's a viable route.

    That tank would have to be a 75g at the bare minimum to house a few dojo loaches which they need to be in groups of atleast 3+, also hillstream loaches are pretty hard to care for , they require Prestine water conditions , Turnover should ideally be 15 times per hour so additional powerheads, airstones, etc would be needed for sure, they also need to kept in groups of 6+ to really see it's most interesting behaviour, you would need to grow algea in a separate tank to feed them as well.

    also not a good idea to have goldfish and hillstream loach , goldfish have huge bio loads and that's the exact opposite of what hillstream loaches need , also the heavy current would just toss the Fancy goldfish everywhere.

    sorry if I burst a bubble.

    Since Hoth is mostly a greyscale landscape, what would you use for substrate, decorations, etc? White sand and some white sand covered caves for the hideout? Maybe another cave with an action figure of Luke hanging upside down? Fish love caves!

    Personally I think a Dagobah tank with a bunch of trees and moss and a crashed X-Wing just peeking out through some plants would be insanely cool. :-D

    There's some Dagobah tank vids on Youtube, I'm prettty sure. I'd want to go for a Mustaphar tank, try to make a volcano and everything.

    You know how some people do amazing sand waterfalls in fish tanks? Imagine that, but with bright red and black sand rolling out of a volcano.
