How would YOU do it?

I'm upgrading from a 40 breeder to a 65. I have slowly been rehoming fish and am down to just a few. My question for you is not what I should do with a 65, but what would YOU do with a 65.

I look forward to your thoughts!

Me personally, I would do this.

Planted tank - semi aggressive
Red tailed shark x1
Tiger barb x10
Synodontis petricola x10
Preferred new world cichlids

I'd put my Brasiliensis, my albino Gibbiceps and my smaller Synodontis Eupterus in it with heaps of planted driftwood.

Well, sometimes these threads just don't take off😏.

I would like to do discus, but that is so expensive. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, I think a couple of big schools of very different fish would look nice. For example, cardinal tetras and harlequin rasboras along with my Bolivian rams and dwarf synodontis

Go heavily planted with a good clean up crew and a large single small species schooling fish. It's truly amazing to see
them school. New Era makes a grazing food ring and it's awesome watching a school eat.
