What would you do with a 55 gallon aquarium, fully cycled, filtered with an Emperor 280? The filter is on a existing stocked tank to preserve benificial bacteria and will be moved to the tank that I got for Christmas. I am no beginner to fishkeeping but I need some inspiration for this new, depressingly empty tank.

Thanks,
Jack

my 55 is filled with rainbows and tetras.

I have 6 australian rainbows, 6 bosemani rainbows, 6 congo tetras, 8 neon tetras, and 8 black neon tetras. also theres a lot of anubias and java fern, all over driftwood and black sand, with a black background. I think it looks great.

bosemani rainbows are really good when they get to about 3" size. They show off really good colors about that size.

12 rainbows you are going to max out on the 55 g tank when they grow up.
