Tom in Warren here. I just picked up a 125 gallon that will be a planted tank. Planted tanks are new to me, so I'm still researching information. Hope to have it up and running in a couple of weeks.
Also have two 55 gallon discus tanks and a couple of 29 gallon tank with discus fry growing out (bought the juvies online).
Sold my 195ga reef tank and equipment to fund getting back into freshwater. It's been about 20 years since I had a freshwater tank. Always had oscar's and dempsey's.
Having a blast so far with freshwater!

|Blackheart||Also sold the light for 40 bucks... not as much as I hoped I'd get out of it, but it'll do|

|Blackheart||Had a lot of good luck recently! I actually sold the 40 gallon for 100 bucks|
|09-16-2014 10:35 PM|
|Blackheart||Yeah that'd be nice, but ah well. Thanks anyways. I decided to just put the 40 breeder up on craigslist. I'm just gonna keep the 75 and set it up sometime in the future when I'm not on such a tight budget.|

|Maechael||Blackheart if I had transport, I'd get the 75 and the 40B from you, but that's a long distance for them.|

|Blackheart||Speaking of activity... I am having no luck selling my 40 breeder. With how popular that style of tank is I'm surprised nobody wants to buy it!!|

Hey let's see some activity here people.
New stufffor me, I've decided to start doing micro scapes in tiny containers.
Also I've fallen in love with meijer's plants, 5 bucks got 7 narrow leaf java fern clusters and 60+ 16inch rotala stems.
Time for some rescaping, mini/micro scaping and a ton of W/C's.
Hope all is well out there.

|Maechael||Finally got our 40b setup and filled and now inhabited.|

|Blackheart||I picked up a 75 gallon with the stand today from a garage sale for a hundred bucks. Score!|

|mrpixel||Setup two 20Gallon Highs in our bathroom on an iron stand. Have them cycling at the moment. The two otos I have in my 5.5G at work decided to spawn and now I have itty bitty fry clinging to the glass.|

|Blackheart||Considering maybe selling my current setup (40 breeder and stand) to help me purchase a C02 kit for my new setup, whichever one I go with. still not sure yet.|

Well hello all, OP here is back for another update.
Just bought another 40B at petco dollar per gallon sale.
Hoping it replaces at least 3 smaller tanks, amd allows for some tank shuffling.
Truly wanting to be rid of large aggressive cichlids by the beginning of fall, and settledon into nice calm and quite community setups.
RCS finally bred for me after nearly a year, dozens of babies.
Mts population has skyrocketed,rabbit snails finally reproduced.

Don't mind the footprint on the 45, I'm just short is all lol So I'll have to find a way to plant the tank more easily and work in it.

|fearsome||If value is important why not try used? Craigslist etc...|

The 38+stand equates to roughly $6.58 per gallon
The 45 is roughly $5.00 per gallon
The 75 is roughly $5.32 per gallon
From this standpoint, to me, the 75 seems to be the best choice. Sure the 45 is cheaper per gallon, but you don't seem to be a fan of the footprint and the 75 allows you more stocking options.
This is my opinion anyway.
