How about saltwater? In a 90 gallon tank you could keep a buttload of stuff and make it look really cool. I would not advise this unless you have some money to dish out right now though. Im not talking about a couple hundred, im talking more along the lines of $1500 to set it up with the equipment, live rock, live sand, anything else that might come in handy, etc.. This does not include the fish and corals.

I saw it, and am in Panama City. I didnt' know you got it that inexpensively. Good Job. Malawi Peacocks and Haps would be awesome!

Thanks, i'm not wanting saltwater I know that. I'm wanting something that i've not done before for this tank. I'm getting a 150 or 180 (as soon as this tax money comes in) also. So, i'll have both tanks to set up. But, i'm picking up this 90 this weekend and going to go ahead and get it started up.

I was thinking of making the 90 a species tank or maybe 1-2 species that get along well and then making the other tank a community of a lake tank with the extra room it will have. I love this and hate this part of picking what to put in a tank. It can give us headaches sometimes lol. I would really like to go with mbuna in the 90 with it's lower footprint of 48 X 24. Any ideals?

I've got yellow labs, socolofi, rusties, and acei in a heavily rocked 90 gallon. Looks great, but a bit unoriginal......

Well, got the tank and it's up and running at the moment. Here is a picture of it set up:


I'm really wanting to go with either of these 2 as my primary for the tank:



OR



I'm fascinated in keeping both of these species of fish. My LFS has both of these in stock regularly. I'm thinking of keeping a 1m/3f or 2m/4f ratio of either one I go with. Now, keep in mind i'm picking up at least a 150 within the next month that I can move over a group if need be due to size. I'm wanting to keep one of these with them with the same ratio:

Kyoga Flameback



Haplochromis sp. "Thick Skin"



What do you think would be good to go with either of them? Or if you have another suggestion, please let me know. I'm getting these over the next few weeks and just want to have a plan or order lol.
