    finally setup my 75 gal again, with a sand bottom this time.
    just got to let it cycle then load it with fish.
    any suggestions on what i should put in it?


    sorry about the dark pic

    Very nice. Did you use pool filter sand?

    What type of fish do you have in mind? Cichlids? Peaceful community fish? Unusual fish?

    Red Bellies would look nice in that or like OneWolvesDream said some cichlid's would be cool.

    If your looking towards bigger fish I think you could put 2 oscars in their provided you kept up with maintance, also some africans chiclids would be pretty cool since you can keep a deasent amount in a tank of that size.

    Yes i did use pool filter sand. Its only 8 bucks for a 50lb bag its waaaaayyyyyyy cheaper than Aquarium sand its about 40 bucks for 20lbs!
    it took 75lbs to give me a nice amount on the bottom.

    it took me about an hour to rinse it all.

    I was thinking of trying my hand at Unusual fish, sharks, Rays somthing like that.
