    I would go 75gal if I was buying new, just for comparison... Now its not $55 but it will allow more fish and a better set up...

    Rocky Caves - texas holy rock works well. You want to turn your tank over 5x/hour so you would need a flow rated capacity for a 55gal tank at 275gph. Now if you have to reduce that on ratings of the filter, consider going up because adding filter media, gunk in the filter, etc, the flow rate reduces.

    Sw: 1 55gal, 1 30gal show, 1 29gal show, 1 20gal and 2 10's

    For the can id be looking at a 2217, that's plenty for a 55. The way peacocks are you don't need much in the way of rockwork, they aren't cave dwellers. A 55 is all you really need for an all peacock tank, BUT if you had a 75 it would allow you to add some larger haps.

    And congrats on the wedding!

    While a 75 would be nice a 55 will be much easier to fit into the apartment and the budget...

    Totally understandable. It only adds a few inches in depth but that appartment space is valuable! 55s are fine for peacocks but its always nice to start out with your max size tank when available.

    How many fish can I stock? Do they need to go in all at once, or can I do a few at a time?

    Its best to add all at once otherwise you can experience some issues with singling out the new guy when you add in. You fishless cycle to achieve this.

    You could add about 15-20 males to start at 3in, if you see aggression as they get larger (I mean singling out, not just the pecking order type aggression) you can remove some fish. A solid 20 fish should be good for a 55gal.

    Wow, that's more than I was expecting! Cool!

    I am familiar with fishless cycling so that won't be a problem (did my 20 long that way). I have almost a full gallon of ammonia, should be enough... lol...
