I think a planted tank with black sand/Eco complete

Low light plants
Vallisneria
Hornwort
Anubias
Java Fern
Java moss
Wisteria
And more...

With a big piece of driftwood would look fantastic!

The 5000k was all I could find lol even the one made specific for aquariums was only 3100k I've got a few plants to go in I'm slowly adding more... They just opened a new pet store lol

If needed you could stack the bulbs and run 2-3 if needed instead of brighter bulbs

Do a pair of blood parrots or a lone Jack Dempsey. They are full of personality

Lots of plants and big sa/ca cichlids usually doesn't work. In my 55g I have one jack dempsey, one green terror, one convict, all juveniles. They will redecorate anything they can move inside the tank.

I have a juvenile JD. She isn't big enough to redo her rocks yet :p I have 1 live plant (Bacopa) in there as a test right now. 1 week and she still hasn't even noticed it.

The rocks and hardscape items are a little different. The red silk plant in my 55 has now been moved all over the tank and the fake plants that were with them when they were in my 65 hex never stayed where I put them. Each fish is different I suppose, but mine redecorate for me
