Looks great. What fish do you plan on putting in there?

that still remains to be a good question :)

I know I want m and fm GBR pair but I will be waiting until around the 4 month mark until finding them. I want a schooling fish, i have cardinal tetra's in my 29g so I want something different. Maybe rummy nose. I think I will go with a BN Pleco, 4 or 5 zebra nerite snails for cleanup.
I have been thinking about 1m/2fm set of pearl gourami's and be done right there.

I might go with two smaller schools or just one large school of tetra's, have not decided.
