    That should be one cool tank no matter what you do.

    I'm not familiar with these standard sized tanks. How big is a four feet tank? 65 gallon?

    If your tank is 65+ gallons, you could go with an aggressive tank or cichlid tank. Those two are my favorites because for the cichlids, they look nice and have different personalities, some are even really smart( Jack Dempseys, Oscars, etc) For the aggressive, I've always lied the black background and gravel to make it a darker tank with (what i have: Barracuadas) fish eating machines with a few tinfoil barbs. If you did have that dark of a tank, your black tail red shark would look amazing once it got bigger. It's a personal thing tho. Some people like colorful, some darker, it kind of reflects on your personality. ( no im not gothic lol)

    Thanks for the info. I do have to say I was a bit discouraged yesterday when I saw Rue's message. Those fishes were supposed to behave well together. I had this list from a "professional" proposing a few communities and all you had to do was pick breeds in that listing... I guess I'll have to triple check everything.

    P, even though I sometimes have a darker side too, I don't think I'll going for a dark tank. I would be afraid Oscars would get too big. I'm more into a lot of small different fishes than a few big fishes at least for my first tank. Maybe there's a way around that but I just don't know.

    For now, I would picture a dark background, a nice mix of artificial plants ('cause I don't trust natural plants in petstores around - they are always full of snails and seem sick), rocks and wood and different breeds of colorful fishes.

    I'm sorry! I didn't mean to be discouraging! I just want people to have a successful tank to start with!

    Once you get some experience you can attempt to mix different species together that aren't nec. recommended - often times they might do well if they have enough space. For example, I have 1 male betta and 3 females in my 25g community tank. They're fine. And it's not a 'recommended' mix...but in this case 25g gives them enough room...

    If your tank is a 55 gallon, scroll down to the bottom of this page and there are some examples for a 30-55 gallon aquarium.

    You can keep a Severum, Silver Dollars, and probably some barbs together in one tank. I would think they'd be fine. I have the dollars, severum, bosemani rainbows, neons, a common pleco, and clown loaches all together in my 100g and all is well.
    10 Gallon FW with Male Betta, 1 male Endler, and 5 Zebra Danios, 100 Gallon with Sevs, Acaras, Parrots and Loaches.

    Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming...

    I did not expect I would get so much help here. Well I was having the same queries as the first poster asked here. Got a huge tank for myself but then was short of ideas in decorating the same. Now that am equipped with information I think my aquarium would be something that not many people would have seen. This would come as a double benefit for me as I have also shifted my apartment to a new one. Thanks a lot for the helpful information.
