You could put it on Craigslist and try to find a good home for it!

What kind of fish are you interested in? What about a school of tetras or something.

Cories are always a good addition. I have 5 (soon to be 7) peppered cories in my 70g and I love em!

Ok what about loaches? I saw a pretty dojo loach. Would it enjoy the stock that's already in there?

I think dojos get too big but khulis would be fine.
