New Tank

Just got this 30 gallon tank dirt cheap from a guy with tons of extras! Now my debate is to what to do with the tank. I do know i am going to have live plants and am thinking of going with T5 for lighting and adding CO2. Now should i do a pair of discus? Angels? What are your thoughts?

Those are pictures also approx 5 hours after setup. Using an Aquaclear filter 10-30 gallons (first time with that brand of filter). Im also using Floramax as the substrate. Never used it before any thoughts?

Nice plans so far. I love a great bargain!

I'd really shy away from discus or angels in a 30, even a pair would be a little cramped when full grown.

What are your thoughts on dwarf cichlids? At 2-3 inches full grown, they'd do great in a 30 and you'd have room for other smaller fish as well.

That's very true I could do some German rams or something. I kinda would like to use this tank maybe for breeding. I just have not made up my mind I guess. I think I need more tanks haha!
