If you want a species pick out a large new world cichlid or a South American or Asian style tank. Here is some stock list. Also what's your tank dimensions?

Stock 1- New World Cichlid
1- Oscar
5- Silver Dollars
1- Stripped Raphael catfish

Stock 2- New World Cichlid
1- Severum
1- Blue Acara
5- Silver Dollars
1- Stripped Raphael Catfish

Stock 3- South American
2- Angelfish
9- Cardinal Tetra
9- Rummy Nose Tetra
8- Cory Cats
1- BN Pleco
1- Bolivian Ram

Stock 4- Asian
8- Giant Danios
3- Clown Loach
8- Pearl Danios
4- Siamese Algae Eaters
1- Kissing Gourami

Stock 5- South American
2- Bolivian Ram
10- Cory Cats
8- Silver Hatcetfish
10- Rummy Nose Tetras or Penguin Tetras
1- BN Pleco
2- Angelfish

Or you could do a wet pet

Look into Red Devils, Midas Cichlid, Jaguar Cichlid, Frontosa. Do you like any of those?

Otocinclus look absolutley amazing in massive schools. I saw a tank with 750 ottos and they school VERY tighly. It looks phenominal!

Sadly and with much regret I must admit that I saw a video of it and did not see it in person. I would LOVE to see it in person and If I ever get a big enough tank would like to try it! I want to do it with zebra ottos though...
