    I have gotten rid of my gold fish as I really want to give them a better home and I have did a lot of homework on a cool tank for a 40b and came up with a South American cichlid tank and I settled on the firemouth cichlid

    Be careful Firemouth is VERY aggressive...I'd do peacocks, very vibrant...
    Rams are very small, lots of room in that tank...

    For Cichlids keep tank pretty bare as far as rock work, the less for the to setup territories (very territorial)...
    A few single rocks and some artificial plants would look great (the will tear up live plants)...
