I have a dream tank, it would be a 75-100 gal cichlid, tons of rockscaping and as many fish as the tank can handle.. I should probably look it all up so I can try to make this dream a reality!

Im already doing as much research as possible on my dream tank. The fish I said in the first post are the fish that I ABSOLUTELY want. My actual stocking plan so far is: dwarf cichlids (including rams ), corys, tetras; neon or glowlite (or both ), and two or three discus as the centerpiece. My South American dwarf cichlid book just arrived in the mail yesterday so you can expect the "dwarf cichlid" part to become more specific.

They're not compatible. OBs are african cichlids and would wipe the tank with the GBRs and angels. The GBRs and angels are compatible however.

If you're going to dream, make it big! I want the entire Melbourne Aquarium.

But a large 6ft planted discus will do as second prize

My dream tank would have to be an in-wall saltwater reef. Somewhere in the 300g+ range. Maybe someday..

Barr's Behemoth giant plant tank - Aquarium Plants That is my dream.

Realistically though I will hopefully have a "dream tank" in a year or so. 125-150gal high tech planted tank. The largest I've ever had is a 40g so it's gonna be a huge leap up for me. I'm getting butterflies just thinking about it.

Mine is a monster fish tank, there is a company that makes them (5,000 to 15,000 gallons). Haha I would probably do either a giant reef, or amazon tank

Dream tank? To buy a house with an in-ground pool, then quickly start adding salt to it...

Hmmm... wonder what size pool for a couple of rays...

WHAT?!? Even after you explained that it would be a super-low maintenance pool that would control the mosquito population AND lower their high blood pressure just watching the fish swim???

I'm not sure about the pike though, isn't that a predatory fish? I knew a guy that kept a bass and bought 75 minnows for it every week. Dogs don't even eat that much!
