anyone here have a really cool fish only tank? i found a 265 gallon tank on craigslist for pretty cheap and i think im gonna go fish only with it. i just want some ideas of how to aquascape it. also, would plants be okay in it? i want a little movement in it, but dont want to deal with corals, so im thinking codium and caulerpa would look good. also, what kind of lighting best shows off a fishes color? someone i know said t5?

my suggestion is some large pieces of rock on one end with hoes and hiding places, maybe some wood air stones under it all with bubbles working their way up and around all the rock and leave the other end open..........that way you can get some shoaling fish like chromis for open water swimming and some fish for the rocks like gobies, blennies or wrasse........nice big fat tang or angel of some sort would top it all off

nice size tank, i wish i could find a deal on monster like that around me
