Hello everybody . This is my first post so please bear with me. Trying to set up a very unusually shaped tank. Stands about 5 ft high, 14 inches wide ( hexagonal shape) so I know its not ideal. Would really appreciate some suggestions on how to stock this tank.

You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

Welcome to the AC, that is a very odd shaped tank, your gona struggle to stock it if your going freshwater, I think it would be slightly, just slightly easier to stock with marine inverts/fishMy therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

I'd stock it with only a whole bunch of smaller fish in large schools. Fish swim back and forth, not up and down, so these tanks are not good for larger fish.
