30 gallon tank setup
 
What would be a good stocking plan for a 30H hex?

well that depends on what kind of look you are going for

Do you want several large fish or lots of small fish? Or a combo of both?

If it were me I would start with a pair of angels.

Yea, but I have heard that they will outgrow a 30 before they pair off... and if they do, it leaves me with 4 angels that I need to get rid of... I am bad at that, I'd feel guilty sending them to die at the LFS...

Don't really care :)

I have a 55 with a juvie 7 ich midas, and then a jack demp. and green terror both at 3 inches as temporary dithers lol... they do the job well :)

I also have a 55 with tetras.

So I have both.

Just gives an excuse for another tank.I have a 37 gallon on the way so I can split mine up. Can't stomach the thought of returning any of them.

How about live bearers or dwarf cichlids?

I can't get another tank, I'm a senior at highschool and I'm not going to school at home next year, hopefully SUNY ESF up in syracuse...

Anyway, I'm setting it up at my dads, and I have this tank lying around so I wanna dset it up. I can't wait till I can get out of my dorm and set up more. I beleive I am addicted...

I was gonna setup my old ten gallon for my newt, get it all nice and planted and get some white clouds, but as I was done cleaning it I slipped and put my knee throug the bottom...

Good luck at school. I didn't notice before nice to see a fellow Long Islander.

Western Suffolk is torture for a nature/outdoor lover lol...
