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

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

    Option 4) 40gallon 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 20gallon 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! :D

    Why would the 40 gallon be only half filled?

    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! :anim_63:

    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

    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. :eek:
    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! :D
    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.

    Option two! BGK's are the coolest little big fish ever! Ahhh I want one! Other then that option 3 sounds cool too.

    I've tried to put bamboo in a tank a couple times....killed the bamboo both times. Then again, cacti die on my watch

    Did you keep the leaves out of the water?
