Clearly the best value tank to get!




Make sure you guys are checking the seams of these tanks and moving them yourselves. I made the mistake of letting an employee put the tank into my car and he was trying to just shove it in and he let it go at one point dropping it on the plastic center console....I told him nope, take it back! And I picked up a new one to put in my car myself. I don't need 40g of water just sloshing on the floor.

I was looking at this sale and was thinking of grabbing a new tank. Whats the deal with 40b? is this about the same as a 20 but 2x the depth?

The 40 is 36 inches long and 18 inches wide, as opposed to, say, a 55gal, which is 4 feet long but only 13 inches wide. More horizontal surface area in the tank is the main thing, I think. I can't wait until I can get mine going.
