New 55 gal.

Hi,
As some of you know I already have 2 55gal. 1 is a reef and one a fowlr. I had the opporunity to get another 55 for free. I am thinking of trying to put more thought into this one, and maybe do a type of them. I have right now
the tank
the stand
3 power heads
a over the back filter
Basic lighting florecent 65 watt 12,000 k daylight
and I have picked up a background.

Any idea on a theme I can focus on with a perticular type of fish , scaping..ect?

Thank you for your imput!

Pick a region and stick with critters that live in that area.

A biotope like Roka suggested would be cool or maybe a species tank. A snowflake eel would be pretty cool or something like a peacock mantis

That's a good idea. I was gonna get seahorses myself but this is my first foray into aquariums in general besides a betta, so I decided against it. Just keep in mind that they would do best in a species-only tank so you wouldn't be able to keep anything else. A biotope would also be really coool
