Well I Got a 55G via a trade today with a new member to add to our massive collection of tanks. I plan on painting the back black, adding a AQUACLEAR 110 & asking target to build me a super nice black stand. So What I want to know is, what should we stock in this tank? Whats your experiences with a standard 55G???

thanks

I have Geo's in with my pbass. The key is just having enough territory for everyone. The Geo's typically stay in the bottom 3rd of the water. Pbass up near the top. They seem to be fine in my tank but I got alot of space. :D
