You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

Welcome to the ACGas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

Welcome to the AC!
I am also a newbie and decided on a 75 gallon for my first tank. I was originally going to get a 55 gal, but when I saw the 75 right behind it, I realized that extra 6 inches of depth made a big difference in the choices I could make.
If you can swing it money-wise, it is a great size tank, with many options for aquascaping and choices of fish. And yes, it is easier to keep the larger 55 or 75 gal healthy.
Also, be sure to check out online vendors for your equipment - www.thatpetplace.com, www.petmountain.com and www.drsfostersmith.com are great.
