    Hi Sarf

    Your options sound great. Just check that your Tang Community tank species are compatible. I like the second option. PS i think you get bore to quickly. :rolleyes:

    Okay well let me slap you with a burst of inspiration! -PLANTED TANK- it looks pretty and you wont ever get bored coz of the creative side to trimming.. You can even keep dwarf cichlids if it makes you happy :)
