new tall tank suggestions

here it is, wanna get creative with scaping the tall tank, and lightly stocking it with top, mid, bottom dwellers. i like to keep regional fish(from the same area/environment.... been thinking, south american=top- hatchet fish, mid- skirt tetra, bottom- not sure yet, keep going back to a kuhli loach but thats south east asian and i wont see it much...

Cories really need length to swim in. How big is the tank? They do better in the longer ones rather than talls.

I don't think I would do cories or kuhlis in there I don't know maybe I'm wrong about the kuhlis. The tank looks cool but it seems to be a bit tricky to stock! I'm interested to know what you decide on

you know I was thinking about mollies actually and platties because they are the only fish really that I have that I see utilizing the entire tank which seems like a real good thing for a tank like that.
