I think that very same thing every time I empty a tank!
Put some water in it! Run a filter on it!

Who said fish?


Try something new. I guess you have a community tank already, get an oddball. Something unusual.
Or sell it?

Try breeding?

Crabs, mudskippers?

Leave it ready then if you see a fish you like, bam! It's in the bag.

I like the look of them moodskippers! Never heard or seen them before , might do some research into them and look into getting some, have you ever had experience with them before?

No I haven't kept them but I really want a tank with them in.

Quite an unusual fish that will get attention from all. I looked into them years ago but never had a suitably empty tank. Really they need a specialised set up that isn't really any good for other fish species. So I put them on hold. I think it was the brackish type water that first put me off but really it isn't so difficult to achieve, just add marine salt! (You'll need a hydrometer too, but they're cheap)
Depending on the price of stock 60-80 /$/€ and you're up and running if you have a tank already. Includes salt/hydrometer costs but it depends on stock level/unit cost. 80 should get you 4-5 fish plus extra equipment.

One day. . . .

Tropical Fish Finder.co.uk - The ultimate UK fish keeping resource for all types of tropical and marine fish, including fish books, articles, fish shops, fish clubs and more.

(If you choose to go this way you'll have the equipment to keep a wide variety of brackish water fishes in the future and some would happily live in that size tank!)
