empty 120. What to do?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have a 120 g reef tank and I am done with salt.  I'm going to convert the sump to freshwater use but I need a nudge as far as tank residents.  I've kept most common fish and mainly like cichlids.  The only thing I don't want to do is African cichlids.  I am torn between a few large central americans or discus but I could go planted community.  

What would you do?

The biggest downside of discus is their difficulty, but the should be easy compared to a reef tank. A nice planted discus tank is hard to beat.

That's what has me a little gun-shy but I have the RO unit from reefing and temps wouldn't be a problem either.  Another issue is sourcing them.

Honestly what I probably would do with that size is a huge rummy nose tetra school. I don't so much get into the larger fish but a huge school appeals to me. 

Some tetras would be neat as well.

What kind of a scape are we talking?  Planted? Rocks? Wood?

It's empty now but I was thinking a pile of rocks around the OF with plants and driftwood poking out

I have used Rummy Nose and Cardinals with my Discus.  18-24 of each along with the Discus.  

That is an option as well.
