^^ Sure. It would be good to know your tank size and the condition, if any. Then accordingly, me as well as others can help you out.
Basically, I would suggest hard plants as they are less prone to rotting. Also, a planted tank will need artificial lighting for at least half a day else the plants will die soon and it will be a mess. Thank god the plants in my tank have started growing fresh leaves. Contact me through PM for any queries.

@_raVan_: planted tanks can bring a lot of joy to you if you dedicate the care and time needed to maintain one. and hope you understand the difference between a planted tank and a tank with plants

in a planted tank, the priority are the plants and the fishes are secondary.

excellent lighting, carbon dioxide are essential to maintain a healthy plant system along with good water and substrates as well. Algae will also be a problem for which you will need algae controllers like shrimps, flying foxes, siamese algae eaters, hillstream loaches and such

you should treat it like your personal garden with timely pruning and care

no easy or fast solution. just time and love

@Ruchirtnt: the most monstrous fish for that tank would be a convict!

How can you even think of a silver arowana [grows upto 3ft] or an alligator gar [grows more than 6ft]. and fyi there is no such thing as a spotted alligator gar. spotted gars are different from their alligator gar cousins.

If you have a desire for true monster fishes then you need monster sized tanks. how hard can that be to understand? i have an asian banjar red arowana in a 6x2x2 tank all by himself. I love my fish and i want him in the best environment i can artificially recreate most important of which is space for him to live in.

If you do not have space/money to invest in such tanks then please wait till you can before buying monster fishes.

Your tank size specified is a nice tank for a planted setup. Why don't you try something like that? Or get 3 convicts or firemouths and such cichlids which do not grow that big but will satisfy your need for having an aggressive fish.

If you are looking for big fishes, for your tank, an Oscar would suit too. But its better they be kept alone or with companions which have been brought up together. Else you would witness a war in the tank once you add new fish with your old oscar

@Ruchirtnt: Again, there is no such thing as a spotted Alligator gar. There are spotted gars and then there are Alligator gars.

This should give you a good idea:
http://www.monsterfishkeepers.com/fo...ecies-Profiles

Also the easiest gar to keep would be the Florida gar which seldom grows more than 2ft. But then again like i said, not for your tank. It would be like getting a great dane and keeping him in an apartment room.

Also for more info on Gars:
http://www.monsterfishkeepers.com/fo...-Lepisosteidae

And just attaching a pic of an Alligator gar. Now why would you even consider getting something like this for a 3ft tank?

Awwww. She's super cute. I wish I could adopt her. But I can't.

Here's another friend who greets me everyday when I go for my morning jog. She's a stray, but she's neutered, vaccinated and cleaned. And she lives in the temple on the ARAI hill. Very very friendly and she eats whatever people provide to her in the morning.

Hey W.A.G.7, I know this dog. I think I've heard people calling her "Anna". She's quite friendly with me too and I feed her biscuits when I go there. In fact, she greets me with a lot of enthusiasm. I didn't know you were a regular there too, but I go there in the evenings usually. We should meet up.
