    Thanks everyone, I had no idea there were so many tetra species. I am looking forward to having such an active tank. Slap, the congos are a good looking fish, I'll have to look more into them. I'm not a huge fan of mollies either but my wife tolerates all this aquarium stuff with a smile on her face. The least I can do is put some mollies in there for her. Thanks for the advice on the breeding, I'll do my best to get all males.

    Thanks for that, I was planning on doing some amano for sure. I may wait till the plants have some more time to thicken up before I put Crs in there. Make sure they have plenty of hiding spots available.

    You can do males or females, but not both, they breed like crazy, so be careful

    A 75G could have 50-100 of them in just a few months

    You need to show your wife some non-live-breeding fish, lol

    Lol, I will take that into very serious consideration. I know some people loving having baby's but I'm good without.

    Livebearers can overtake a tank very quickly, I had my experience with platys, it was no fun.

    Steer her away from mollies, platys, swordtails, and endlers....you'll be glad you did

    If you can try to stay away from prolific breeders of you can. Or add something that can at least help cull the fry down a tad. Other wise tanks become full of fish in months.

    Years ago I use to breed platys for a feeding supply for my angles fire mouth. But even then they still managed to breed up.

    So it's been a while since i've updated this one at all. I've got a lot of projects going on because I cant help myself lol. But I'm finally ready to get this done. Oddly enough the original title to this was wrong, it was a 90 gallon tank. But fast forward to current times. I was putting my man cave/office together where the tank is going to go and realized the 90 was just to big. So i sold it and now have a brand new 75 gallon, funny how that works. I finally just stopped and ordered everything i needed for it. So the specs are, a 75 gallon aquarium, hydor canister filter (i think thats how you spell the brand), fluval "e" series 300 watt heater, 160 lbs of eco complete, pressurized co2 system with a aquatop led fixture. I've got a large piece of driftwood and 4 small pieces of Cholla wood.

    I hope to start planting and putting together next week. My plan is to just plant the baby tears and wrap my cholla wood in Java to start with. I figure it will be a lot easier to plant the baby tears while there is very little water in the tank. I have my regulator and everything else i need for the co2 system, except the co2 canister. I was going to spend the money and get a 5 or 10lb canister but have decided to go the economical route and use the paintball canisters. I have the adapter ordered and coming Friday. I'm still undecided on what other plants i'm going to put in this tank and on what fish to stock. But i'm excited to finally get it going
