I'm not sure yet, I'm thinking of making it into a community tank, I was wanting angelfish in it, but I know personalities can clash easily and the closest fish store to me is an hour away so I can't really take them back if they start fighting. Im considering a few schools of tetras, Kuhli loaches, cories, (MAYBE) rainbow fish (depending on space), Otos. And I may have to think about the moss idea, it sounds like it could be awesome! Do you think I should get more swords to go behind the arch? I've been toying with the idea.

Those fish choices sound nice. If I had to restart, I'd have threadfins and kuhlis only.
You could do another sword or possibly a set of stem plants such as Bacopa caroliniana along the back wall.

My angles have done great with my corries! Only time I have had an issue with aggressive angles is when they laid eggs.

Hmm interesting, I was actually leaning towards the thread-fin rainbow fish a lot. I may have to give them a try.

Don't forget Root Tabs for your Swords and any Crypts. Your Swords may not thrive in the corner. That is usually the least PAR. They may be fine. Just keep an eye on them.

Lol, THANKS! It's been trial and error so far with this one as I'm trying some new fish and decorations than my other tanks but everything's slowly getting better!
