Just bought a new tank...

So, just bought another tank because it was going cheap.

Now, what to do with it? Haha, it's a 2 foot tank, not sure on the capacity but I'll check that in a bit.

I already have a 70gal community tank, a fry tank and a 20gal marine, what now?

Haha, I'm way to addicted to give a tank away - that is, unless you want a 1 gallon brine shrimp tank? lol

Yeah, I thought about a chiclid tank, might have to consider it.

Hmm. I don't think that there are any cichlids that could fit in there... Unless you did maybe 2 dwarfs...

Some good idea's! Thanks!

Might go with a freshwater? Any ideas on some different types of fish I could go with?

I was thinking maybe a Siamese fighter with a bunch of tetra neons or something different.

The BW idea is interesting though!

Ooh! I love betta's! If you go FW... Maybe you could go with an Asian theme... A bunch of suitable fish from Asia, with some Asian decor? Just to try it out lol. That's what I'd do. Sorry, getting a bit over excited lol. Betta's, even males, make awesome community fish though. You just have to know how to add them.

It's 15 gallons, pretty happy with that.

I like the sound of an Asian theme, plenty of plants and some Asian decor, some statues or something.

Siamese fighter I'm really thinking about getting for this tank, with a few other fish to go with it, any ideas?

Well... (not sure how Asian these fish are... But they're cool lol) I'm doing this in a ten gallon:
1 male betta
6 neon tetras
3 ottos
2 African dwarf frogs
Just to give you an idea.

Yeah, I'm thinking about doing neon tetras with a Siamese fighter, might just do a bunch of them, I think it would look pretty cool.
