CQ's 40g Ghost Ship
One of the concessions my husband asked in exchange for setting the aquariums up in the new house was a tank based around this or similar.
This aquarium is next in line once Tetra Zen is fully stocked--hopefully by summer--so I've been trying to pull together some ideas. Right now I'm leaning towards creating a 'ghost' effect with black/white/silver/see-through fish. Unusual or visually striking fish would be great, but aren't a must. What I'd really like is something I haven't done in the past, so preferably no tetras, live-bearers, or angels.
Any and all bouncing of ideas would be great.

Well, so much for no tetras.
Since I had today off from work and it was too cold to go out, I spent most of my time looking at fish. The upshot of this was that while there still won't be any live-bearers or angels in the Ghost Ship, most of the fish I liked we tetras. Avoiding them entirely may not be possible!
Options I'm Considering
Top: gourami (pearl, opaline, three-spot)
Middle: tetra (white rummynose, red eye, diamond, panda, black phantom, black neon, black skirt), rasbora
Bottom: adolfo, albino, bandit, panda or schwartz cory
Any other mainly black/white/silver fish I should consider?

LOL, was going to respond before but when you said "no tetras", decided I had nothing else to offer. But now, definitely get the Diamonds. They are beautiful in a large group. Love the rummys too.

You decided your own stocking.
Pearl for the top.
10 diamonds or 15 rummys for the middle
Corys for the bottom.When everything goes without a hitch its only then do you realize something is wrong

The diamonds will be fine in a 30 gal, which is a 36 inch tank. I have 12 in my 29 gal and it's a 30 inch tank. Just be sure to have 8 or more in the school to avoid fin nipping.
How about diamond and black skirt tetras and the cory of your choice?75 gal - Smudge Spot Cories, Silvertip & Pristella Tetras, Scissortail & Red Tail Rasboras, Zebra Danios, Wild Caught BNP
Dual 29 gals - Diamond Tetras. Harlequin Rasboras, Peacock Gudgeons
10 Gal - Mr. Betta's Fishy Paradise

Penguin, emperor, Priscilla tetras are nice too. Penguins can be bossy so need a nice school. Emperor's are beautiful and I haven't had Priscilla but love the look of them.
