Been here for like three months? And completely forgot about introductions oh well. Well my name is Kai and I currently live in Richmond, I also assume I am one of the younger members at the age of 15? Anyway wanted to say it's great to talk to everyone on this forum as many are very knowledgeable towards the hobby. Anyway I currently have a 37G Tall Planted Community, 20G Shrimpy Only and a 10G CPD Breeder, however I am currently planning a 75G Planted Community and am looking for suggestions both for plants and livestock. So if anyone has any suggestions as to what I should put in that would be great :) PS Planning on using pressurized Co2 and ferts for good plant growth.

Have a good day/night :D

Hey Kai

Welcome
You could think of making it a rainbow fish tank. With different kind of rainbow fishes. Its would look very colorful . The rainbows look great in a planted tank. You could also add a few denison barbs also well known as torpedo barbs. They look amazing. Check out the show tank at Rogers aquatics. They have the same combination of fishes.

Yeah definitely giving Boesemani Rainbowfish some thought. I also thought about Denison Barbs/Roseline Sharks but they grow huge so I kinda threw that idea out the window.

Your aquarium game is on point if you're running CO2 at 15 years old. Keep it up bro, and welcome to the community :)
Haha thanks but not right now currently its just a plan for the summer when I have more time to monitor/setup everything.

Just to let you know the Denison Barbs grow to a maximum of 6", same as the Boesemani Rainbows. I had Rainbows that were nearly 6".
The only issue is that the Denison barbs have a tendency to jump, so you need a hood or a glass cover.
In a heavily planted tank they both look and do great.
