I'd use it as a home for my ever-expanding platy population.

One fish that is pretty nice to watch is the Microdevario Kubotai. Around here they are about $5. each, I only have 5. Planning on more but they are good movers around the tank and bright. There should be a better group of them in my tank (very soon).

A nice little bottom fish is the Peacock Gudgeon.

Rams are beautiful - I love the Blue Rams.

IF you aren't interested in having CO2, and just want to kick it with normal lighting, some great low light plants are many (most) Crypts, Anubias - nana is awesome (not Pinto), Bolbitis heudelotii. I haven't yet started growing them but lots of Bucephlandras are lower light tolerant.

What about the focus of the tank on planting and Aquascaping?

Are you looking for a challenging option or a easy soothing option, or.....??? Do you have time and money for a fancy high tech tank, are you able to deal with the exacting adjustments, and lots of algae and dialing in the parameters?

Simple and beautiful Neons or Cardinals and Cory Cats, Glass Cats. Lower light plants.

Shrimp, I'd get some really classy shrimp and just keep something simple. Space is already ear-marked on the other filing cabinet for a 15 or 20gal, just need to finally buy a tank.

Autumnsky, could you show us a picture of your Microdevario Kubotai? I've never heard of the species before and they sound pretty cool. Did you find them online?

I think I'm going to do a pretty big school of neons and a male betta. I'm going to use a diy led rope/hood like uarujoey made and have a piece of driftwood and artificial plants

Would neons and Rams work?

I think it depends on the type of rams. Two Bolvian or GBRs with a school of neons would look amazing...

I'm not totally sure but I believe that GBRs tend to be more sensitive and aggressive, don't trust my word on that though. I'm sure they would be fine with neons, but not sure about how much space they need. Keep us updated

Rams like a higher temperature, like around 80-82+. While my neons have been doing fine at 78-80 this summer, 80+ for an extended period might be pushing it. Likewise if you kept the ram in the mid-70s to be compatible with the neons.

A better (or at least more common) choice with rams are cardinal tetras, which also like 80+ water. I think Rummynose tetras do well in this environment, too.
