30G uses?

Hi I was wondering what I should do with my 30 gallon that is laying around and btw I currently have a reef tank (with a 30 gallon sump), a gourami tank (20 gallon sump), a 16 gallon Biorb community , a 16 gallon biorb for my precious 40 some baby platies, a betta home and 4 extra square feet in my room HHMM (cichlid tank) "cough" maybe later, but I was wondering what i should use my 30 gallon tank for I already found a good place in the living room for it but I was stuck on what I should put in there like some indian mudskippers or a turtle or whatever. I cannot decide help me I may go crazy looking over my 1,000 plus options so just, what do you think i should do?

why not do a nano reef with it or even an invert tank (shrimps, stars, crabs, snails) even an anemone with a mated pair of clowns

K thanks I didn't think a clown fish pair would work in a 30 gallon with an anemone but i was maybe thinking brackish also do you think a fish like 2 piranha's maybe i already have a pair of clownfish with an anemone in my reef it is a bta and yes I do know that Piranhas can grow up to 12" but does anybody know of any smaller ones like idk a rare dwarf piranha lol I know im an idiot but might as well try to find one. WOW I TYPE SO DRAWN OUT, SRRY!
