    I would love a mixture of Leopard Danios, Zebra Danios, Tiger Barbs, and a single Pleco! All in a BIG setup!!

    I love tanks full of little fish - its nice to watch them shoal and interact but then I also really like more unusual solitary fish.. so thats my excuse for more tanks! ;)

    I like the big fish--I'd like to have a big tank with a Jack Dempsey or some big fat fancy goldfish

    saltwater, reef tank with tons of crazy corals that need like 8wpg and anemones and a pair of ocellaris clown fish, and a tang, and a fairy basslet, and a strawberry dottyback, and some other bright neon exotic fish.

    I would rather be understocked, although I really am not right now. I do want my babies to have room to play. LOL

    i replied both one and two because its nice to have a big healthy lookin fish with a bunch of other ones swimmin around it
