Congratulations! That's awesome.

Step 1.... Corydoras. 😉

Following that, I would ask a few things. What kind of fish interest you and your wife? Specific colors or personalities?

Do you have a stand for it as well?

When I got my 55 I did a large species tank (20+ of a one type) with corydoras and a lot of nice plants.

Cories are the best! I recommend them. I have a pair of pepper cories and a false julii (1 of them died recently😥). amazing beasts. They are interesting.

Your tank looks nice. I'd second the recommendation for background, window film or something that's one color.

I love my 55.

55 and 75 are the perfect sizes, I think, for people who aren't able to keep the larger tanks but want a nice big display. 75 gives a little more room for bigger fish but my smallish apartment spoke up and 55 it was.

Mine's full o' tetras.

I love the 55 as well. It’s still easy to maintain but looks a lot bigger than it is.
