    what about a red hi-fin wolf fish? you'll be able to house it in te 55g for live.
    If my wife lets me keep me 55g that's what I'll be getting.

    I like both suggestions, I am into cichlids. Only prob with oscar is my wife thinks they are ugly and she has a little say in the fish. I told her i would give her a list of fish and she could pick a fish from the list for the tank. I had to make a deal to get it :)

    pfft, she's got enough. She actually liked the idea when i told her i am gonna put my 30 gal underneath the 55gal.

    I am actually eventually gonna put a 40gal under it. And she was fine with that idea. All about space saving. lol

    very nice looking fish. My wife really like the look of blue jack dempsey's. Will a pair of them do ok in a 55gal by themselves besides a few bottom feeders and a pleco?

    she saw this pic and really liked the way they look. I like them too, i just dont like their price tag.

    Yeah, they would do nice in a 55g,..a little tight,..but i think
    if you left it mostly a planted tank they would do fine,..they
    say Blue Dempseys tend to be less aggressive,..but i suppose that
    varies fish to fish,..also said they can reach 10''s,..but i think
    they grow closer to 8''s,..As far as finding a male & female,..The
    male has a longer and more pointed dorsal fin than the female. The
    male may also have a round black spot in the center of the body and
    at the base of the tail. The female has fewer spots than the male.
    If nothing else, venting is allways a sure way to tell. Found this
    pic,..one to show the better half as well,..Nice choice btw!!

    well, its not a set choice yet, she liked the pic, but they dont seem to be as common as just a normal JD. But i am still going to go check out those carpintis and see what they want for them.

    Ok, got an update. That Retro filter from the 70/80's sounded like a 4 banger on its way out. So i found a pair of whisper 60's for free. And i currently am using 2 150 watt heaters till i can afford new stuff.

    here is the tank now. lids and lights going on tomorrow hopefully.

    hey looks nice man. I love those whisper power filters I dont care what anyone ever says about them filters to me they compete with any filter on the market. I have several whisper power filters one on my 55 gallon oscar tank and its been on the tank as long as I have had the fish. anyhow your setup is looking nice and a jack dempsey would be nice in there instead of the oscar cheers
