I am going to completely change the stocking of my tank once I switch to the 90g I should be getting today. High tech high light planted tank. Pulling out all of my shrimp to house some larger fish species.

2 Angels
10 Harlequin Rasbora
10 Praecox Rainbows
10 Synodontis Petricola
4 Plecos
2 - Bristlenose
1 - Rubber Lip
1 - Orinoco Angel

I am currently in the process of putting together a drilled 220 gallon tank. It will be at least a year till I can set it up but I almost have everything I need. Only big piece I'm missing is a return pump. I'm going to custom build the stand out of wood which will hold the 75 gallon sump. I also have 3 very large pieces of driftwood that came with the tank for decor. I haven't decided on gravel or sand substrate yet and I haven't nailed down a stock list. I'm either gonna go with a peacock/hap tank (the driftwood will not be used) or I'm gonna have a monster tank and go with new world cichlids. I also thought about just throwing in 300 neon tetras instead. lol

It should be cycled already if you had 15 healthy goldfish for any length of time. Just make sure you keep the filter media away from water that has not been treated with prime or API water conditioner because chlorine and other additives to tap water will kill the bacteria that converts very harmful Ammonia into Nitrite then Nitrate. Do you have a master test kit to test PH, Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate?

A tank of relaxation.

I'd love to have a 30 gallon in my living room centrally located so I can relax on the sofa with a hot cup of tea and watch the fish. I'm thinking black sand substrata, planted, with good composition and maybe a centerpiece rock or wood. Two graceful goldfish, a school of neons tetras, a school of black tetras or maybe danios, and a pretty snail. Hopefully on a stand that has under storage to hide all the equipment and cords.

I might try to paint all of the backs of my tanks black. I'm thinking about buying black sand for my betta tank, adding more bettas/dividers, and hopefully getting a hood soon. Waiting for petco's 50% off sale to stock up my 29g. Waiting to get some more cash to heavily plant my tanks more. I'm pretty excited.

17 days later and where my tanks are.
20g. 1 NT died of stuck to hole behind filter i hadn't noticed, now fixed. Bought the 5 KLs and 4 HR's (all LFS had in stock) and wanted 5 more HRs. Scored 2 HRs, 4 NTs with a Bristlenose Plec and the 5g rimless cube they were in for free yesterday.

Immediate plans
- Acclimate the new arrivals into the 20g tomorrow. Priority 1.
- Operation filter shuffle. I have 2 new uncycled filters that will be going into an empty 20, and the other will soon replace 2 smaller filters in the running 20g. Priority 2.

When time permits (pushing for within a fortnight)
- Start the build on another 20g. I have soil, iron rich clay and fine black gravel for substrate, Driftwood is ready for a cycling tank and enough plant clippings to make it look pretty though the cycling process. Hope to have it ready for hardscaping tomorrow.
- Stop procrastinating with a stand build so i can move both 20g tanks onto the bottom shelf.
- Flood + add cycling filter. I don't want to have to empty it to move it to the stand so flood is postponed till stand is ready.
- Repair the broken 40g i have to occupy the upper shelf. Will fix it when i get the glass.

Next 1-3 months
- Plan and build a pond.
- Split the inhabitants of my soon to be overstocked 20g into 2 tanks.
