So after being so unhappy with my current tank for several months now and really never got it up and running. Wife is allowing me to have a custom tank built. It going to be something we both work on and she wants to be involved.
So we have it narrowed down to a few tanks.
180 (72 x 24 x 25 Tall)
240 (96 x 24 x 25 Tall)
Almost same at this point, other than the 240 2 feet longer. We have room for either one, but I am thinking the 180, mostly since it not so long.
Both would be setup with 2 overflows, sump, along with oak stand/canopy. No more dealing with stuff in the tank and canisters.
Looking at custom made sump around 65 gallons either way.
Only looking at about 300 in price between the 2 setups. Does not include plants, lights, so on.
If it were me it would depend on how difficult maintenance would be, mainly water changes. 240 gal would be awesome, but for a tank that large I would want a sink near by to just be able to run a hose direct from the faucet.
