    And no fish aren't the only option [​IMG]. I would either start a jungle ecosystem with geckos and other lizards and on the bottom a river with stingrays, some cichlids, and some freshwater eels. Or I would do a saltwater tank where I would put tons of lionfish, damselfish, corals, clownfish (and their anemones [​IMG]), some kind of tang (probably a blue tang), and a few angelfish. Now I want to hear you responses.

    I had a river aquarium once that I miss... it was a nice setup.. bascially half fish half reptile... lots of rocks on one side which leads into a 'pond' where the fish swim... water would start ontop of the mountain, meander down a path to the pond past live plants etc... along the side of the river was lizard & turtle habitats..

    I am a saltwater guru. I had oe for 5 yewars till my tank leaked and lost $2000+ in livestock. I will do it again when I get a newer tank. I had tangs, stingrays, clowns, puffers ETC..
