    Guess it's time to start the journal! I figured this time I would try to document everything right from the beginning. Hoping to get some ideas from you guys, not really sure what I want to do with it yet. Only thing I have ruled out is salt water, just too difficult in a second floor apartment.

    Got it all painted and placed in the room today. Have the canister and stuff ready, just have to decide what I want to put in it!

    Looks like a good start! So whats the dimensions of the tank?
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Very nice setup! I like where you placed it. My thoughts are of course a natural setup. Good sandbed heavily planted with rocks and driftwood. And for sure Cory's some tetras. Hyphessobrycons preferably. Then a center piece fish such as gourami or dwarf or smaller species of cichlid. And a otocinclus or two

    Off to a good start! Naturally I am going to suggest cichlids. I would do pool filter sand, branchy driftwood(manzanita perhaps?) Some hardy plants(melon swords, anibias, crypts, etc), maybe some river stones or seriyu stone. For stock I'd either do a wet pet cichlid such as some species of Astronotus or maybe even a female Jag. Or something like a community of cryptoheros living with swordtails and some small plecos.

    Those are along the lines that I was thinking. Either that or a rift setup, if I do rift it will probably be a peacock/hap show tank. If I go SA im not really sure, I thought about maybe a group of angels. Ill have to see what Jeff has these days he always has special fish.

    I would say look into the geophagus Cichlids. They get decent size and are not mean like the Africans are. You could also house rainbows with them they will get along. I would recommend a sand substrate too. The Geos are also referred to as earth eaters cause they'll always be picking up the sand and spitting it back out. The Geos will tend to stay to the bottom to middle of the tank where as rainbow will be more of middle to top. I had both of these species together in my tank for awhile before I decided to go all Cichlids. Never had a problem with behavior from amy of them. Another good new world Cichlid you may like is the acara. All these Cichlids I mentioned will also work with Angelfish.

    Here's an example. This is my 125 and in it I have geophagus tapajos, electric blue acara, Angelfish and clown loaches. They all get together great and don't bother my plants.
