Hmm...lots of options there. I would base one around angelfish, another around Barbus denisonii and the third be heavily planted with nothing but a giant shoal of cardinal tetras.

I was going to say

1) all based on apistos
2) demasonis (maybe start a breeding colony)
3) planted tank with huge school of rummynose

You can bring them down to my new hatchery and I will raise some Angelfish in them

Not with just three 55s but they might go nice with the 12 new tanks I got today for hatching eggs and fry less than 30 days old ( and making a total of 30 tanks so far for the new hatchery ) Grow out vats/tanks are next so 55s might just work

Unfortunately, these tanks are just in a pile while I finish the building. There is no electric yet or interior walls or plumbing so there is nothing to show you. (unless you want to see a pile of tanks )
But the thread will come, in due time. I promise

Lol Andy. He saw my pile and is trying to convince the parents to let him swim across the great big pond and come scoop mine up. Looking forward to your build thread !!
