New Tank Blues
I'm going to get a new aquarium. I'm thinking maybe a 75 gallon...you know, the whole deal. I want to put in live plants, and community fish. Guppies, neons, zebras, cory's white clouds...you get the idea. Also, I want to plant the tank with all kinds of live plants.
Here's my dilemma:
Whenever I've set up a tank like this...55 or around that..I start out with little community fishes. But then, I'll see a baby Pacu, or a beautiful convict, or my favorite cichlid--the Jack Dempsey. Invariably, I'll want to change the whole tank over to accomodate these more aggressive species. I'll justify it by saying 'why waste such a large tank on such small species."It's a kind of aquatic wanderlust.
Does anyone else go through this? If so, what do you do about it? (and don't say 'buy 2 75 gallon tanks' my wife would kill me!)
