55 or 75 Gallon Forum Build

Hey guys what's up! I currently own a 10 gallon aquarium and I'm looking to upgrade to either a 55 or 75 gallon. Unfortunately I can't be sure which I will do yet.

I've created this thread because I wanted to try something different. I wanted to let this amazing community decide what I should do with this tank. By "do" I mean I want to let the community decide everything I so with this tank. From the fish to the scenery. I was already thinking I want to do an aquaskape but I'm not sure whether I should so fresh or saltwater. I was kind of leaning towards fresh since I have only had my aquarium for about a year though.

So basically I want this thread to decide what goes in my tank. Of course I will be here to brainstorm and answer questions and such. I hope this doesn't sound lazy or something like that. I'm just unsure of what I should make this tank like!

You have nearly unlimited possibilities for a 55 or 75 gallon only thing I can think of right now that'd off limits are common pleco's, koi, and I believe most sharks. Someone else had started a thread about a 55/75 upgrade a member told me to look up an albino longfin bristlenose pleco.. And it's absolutely gorgeous! Personally I would do freshwater, but I don't have the time to keep a saltwater aquarium. I think going with natural decor would look awesome, also having live plants would be good ( if you even want to go that route).

If you have a choice with what size to get I'd personally get the 75.
Some people like cucumbers better pickled.
