All be it not marine and a lot smaller then my old marine setup

This is around 150L I think has JBL pro scape plant soil under the main sand and some random plants added with a large piece of wood filtration is a Fluval 207 and lighting is Fluval 30" Aquasky.

Tank temp at the minute can be altered to accommodate its inhabitants but I've currently set it to 24°c

I'm in need of some stocking ideas I want the tank to look nice and busy in the end so smaller fish would be best so no goldfish or plecs.


Cheers
Marty

You can’t beat a plec! Little dinos.

I’ve always wanted an Amazonian community tank, but never have. Always gone for cichlids, be it South African or South American.

I’d get guppies, tetras, etc. Maybe Siamese fighting fish, but I don’t know much about those to know if they’re unsuitable in some way.

A community tank designed well, you can get fish groups that occupy different layers of the tank.
