Hi
In a few months time I was thinking (money permitting) of getting a 300 gallon tank. So what would you recommend? I would like a community tank. With a RTBS and tiger barbs. I would prefer if it wasn't a biotope
Thanks

300 Gallon and your first thought is Tiger Barbs & Red Tailed Sharks?

Clown Loaches for the bottom! Best bottom feeder in the world, colourful and playful!

I'd have to go with at least 4 or 5 clown loaches, a small army of cory's, some german blue rams and if your up to the task a nice group of discus (if not a group of angels) and a load of cardinal tetras

I'd love to do rainbows, Roselines, gouramis, and an awesome school of rasboras.
