    Oooo, cuttles, yeah... good idea. Pharoah cuttles are my personal favorite (like the ones pictured in my avatar)

    but other than cephs.... You definately should think about a moray! They're just the most loveable critters you can find. :grin: :wink:

    I had a little snowflake eel in my dorm room for a while, but with your size tank you can go a little bigger than that.

    the most expensive thing on his tank is the acrylic windows wich was is now like $1000 bucks for a sheet of it.

    its made of wood. and covered with fiberglass and epoxy , been up a long time he said

    i think he told me he had about 1400 in it just window, plywood 4x4 and epoxy and fiberglass

    which isnt bad at all ,

    but the thing is after you get it set up all you can afford to do is put guppies in it lol
