I'll be the one to say it!

You have so much room on that wall, why didn't you upgrade bigger?!

Lol, I would except I live on the 6th floor of an apartment building and the 40B was heavy enough to carry up... not sure if we could get anything bigger into the apartment. I'm also paranoid about how much weight the floor can take :/

And they're not shown in the pic, but there are two 10 gals on either side of the 40B

Were those silver angels I sold you last year when they were baby? They grew big if that is. The shape of that floating driftwood looks nice. I want that.
