    I really love my 65 gallon. The 36x18 footprint makes it easy to scape and gives the tank many stocking options.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    Im into huge tanks and multi tank set ups... I wish I still had my set up from Oregon. I had a 6 unit 3 stack in 2 columns of 75 gal tanks and a 300 tank next to it. I just wish I invested in knowing more about the other pieces. I wouldnt own a single HOB or canister if I could redo it and would go algae scrubber/sump on almost everything or sponge filters with a central piston drive. Also the light requirements and cheap substrates that are better looking than the other stuff. Im on the way though to get to where I want to be.

    I started with an 80g and honestly I don't think I would change that. It was big enough that I didn't have to upgrade a ton of times even as I changed my mind on fish a ton of times. I would change the setup though. Start with a canister filter instead of a hob and an inline heater...

    I personally wouldn't waste my time these days with a tank less than 20G unless you only had ambition to keep a solo betta. 55s are a good size in terms of offering a fair amount of water but their shape is ridiculous. You will grow to dislike their narrow width as it is very difficult to scape a tank that is 4ft long and that narrow. I would decide on how large of an area you want to devote to the tank. Then see what sizes are available and if you like taller or shorter aquariums. If you can devote 30" to a tank then Id go for a 56G column, 36" a 50/65G, 48" a 75/90G.

    The first aquarium I bought for my new house was a 56G column...a lot of people rag on column tanks but this one is actually super easy to scape and offers much more space for fish than originally thought. For a space saving tank I really like this one.

    Yes, my tank size seems to be growing the more I read. We only have 5g and 10g available here. I knew that I didn't want smaller than a 29g, but still thought that was a decent sized tank. But now I have really shifted into looking at 50, 65, 75, 90, and 125 gallons... I have an 8' long space available, so even a 6' tank would fit okay into it. The 75/90 seems like a pretty good size, and I do think I would prefer one that was at least 18" wide.

    TWO 75g tanks would fit perfectly there... ;)

    One cichlid tank, one community tank. PERFECT

    I started by helping with my daughter's 10 gallon, and that's all we have at this point....which tank would I have preferred to START with?...probably a 30 gallon...which size do I WANT for my next tank?...55 or 65 gallon...

    Question: what is the smallest tank size with an 18" footprint between the back and front?

    What's the difference in a "breeder" and a regular tank?...looking at some different websites, some "breeders" look like there is a divider on the top and bottom of the tank, and some don't...guessing a divider of glass fits into those partitions (?)

    I have room for a 30 gallon breeder right now, but from what I've read, they are not very common (?)
