Ideas for 92gal corner bowfront
Hi there -
I have recently opened up quite a bit of space in my 92 gallon corner bowfront - I moved a bunch of fish into a new larger tank. So, I have my new stock planned for the 92, thanks to all of you guys, but I have some setup questions. Since there are not very many fish in the tank right now I thought it would be a good opportunity to redo the substrate and decor.
The planned schooling fish are: 12-15 blackskirt tetras, 8-10 congo tetras, and 7 dwarf neon rainbows. There are also a honey gourami and an angelfish in there, and two siamese algae eaters.
My question - what color substrate would best highlight these fish? I am using the Aquariumplants.com planted substrate - black, neutral, or red. Any particular plants you would recommend? Any other ideas you can throw out there would be great! If anyone has any pics of a nicely done corner tank I would love to see them. Thanks!!

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

Those corner tanks are cool... I was going to get one before I got permission from my wife to move things around a bit and make room for a 4' tank.
Just so you know, I have the "black" Aquariumplants.com planted substrate, and it's not what I'd call black: it's dark grey.300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

Were those the only choices? Go with black then.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
