The heigth of the tank may make decor and maintenance some what difficult.

Oh I get it now. The tank is shaped somewhat like an uppercase letter B. Well shoot, doesn't take a ton of bric- I mean fish to fall on me, now does it?


Its a nice looking tank. You could certainly put some tall plants in there, maybe a central piece of unique driftwood. How many gallons is it? Maybe you could do some harlequin tetras or other small schooling fish....

OK so roughly 33 US gallons...

Is it more important to you to have a particular set up for the tank, or to have certain types of fish? For example, some people really like lava rock and may want that on the bottom of their tank... so in this case, we would not reccommend corys et al. because the lava rock is too rough for their mouth bristles.

Some people may like tons and tons of plants and others may not like plants at all. Some may want a natural style of aquarium whereas others may want hot purple colored gravel... Others may really like sunrise platy fish or others may really like angel fish etc...

Would you rather start with the landscaping of your tank first, or the fish that you would prefer?
