What would you do with this tank?

Hi, I picked up this 3/4" thick acrylic tank a few weeks ago with the intention of turning it into a California biotope cold saltwater tank, but I've got two other cold saltwater tanks running at the moment (as well as 2 planted freshwater, and a reef tank). I'm not really sure I want a 3rd chiller running. O.D. are 24" long x 12" x 12", but the total water volume will only be around 10-15 gallons. I'm looking for suggestions on what to do with it. I'm open to either saltwater or freshwater. Possibly a single species tank? Please share some of your ideas, no matter how plain or far out! Thanks!! Click image for larger version

You could go with a freshwater Asian Shrimp Aquarium, with a part way out of water plant growing operation as well.
Or a amphibian type set up.

I'd say puffer fish. . . Brackish, figure eight.
Purely because these fish rock.

Mantis tank, or maybe one of the smaller anglers would be a cool species tank

Right now I have a 100 gallon F/W planted with about 300 RCS, neon green and ember tetras, and a family of albino longfin bushynose Pleco's.

I've thought about adding one of these to my 100 gallon planted tank. They look really cool, and would go with the current stock well, I think.

I've thought about puffers. Brackish is something I've never kept before. Liveaquaria is saying 30 gallon minimum for them? Are they really messy or something?
