I've been fighting a battle with myself about a tender topic at hand. What tank is next?! I have several ideas, and thoughts. But in a nutshell, this is what I have been thinking about:

Option 1) 75 gallon community tank(7 Red Wag Platies, 7 Black Redtailed Veriatus, 4 Black Mollies, 4 Dalmation Mollies, 15 Neon Tetras, 6 Lampeye Tetras, 5 Glass Fish, 2 plectos)

Option 2) 75 gallon Knife tank(1 Black Ghost Knife, live planted)

Option 3) 40 gallon Asian tank - half filled(20gallons)(3 Gouramis, 7 Zebra Danios, 7 Glofish Danios)

Option 4) 40 gallon Salt Water tank(Not sure yet, but there has to be Clown Fish...HAS TO BE!! And Live rock)

I need the larger community tank because I have too many mollies in my 20 gallon as it is. 4 Black mollies, 4 Dalmation mollies, 2 platies and 2 glass fish(too many)
Either way all of these tanks will some day be mine, I just want to know which ones I should go for first! Any suggestions or helpful advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks you!

I just saw a black ghost knife this weekend for the first time! What a cool fish! I would definitely vote for that. Maybe you could get some guppies for tank mates. NOT!

I'm hopefully getting one today for my 90. Either a BGK or some boesmanI rainbows - depends which looks better and which is available.

I like option number three, if it's planted and you let the plants grow out of the water. Otherwise, I'd like option two. ;D

Why would the 40 gallon be only half filled?
So I can put bamboo in it.

That's a shame...better luck next time. One thing I found out about them is they LOVE live foods, and are VERY playfull and interactive. I couldn't find any more info than this.

I've actually already decided that option 1 would be best, only I'm getting a 125 gallon instead of 75 gallon. BUT, I will most definitely be getting the BGK next!
But that will be a while...
And yes, I do plan on putting live plants in it. I am gonna' put plenty of bamboo in there and let it grow right out.

Did you keep the leaves out of the water?
