30 Gal long?


Can anyone tell me where I can get a 30 Gallon long tank?
I would be willing to buy a used on as long as it's in really good condition.

Dont know where you can buy a new one but I do have one sitting in my basement. Its been there for awhile so I would have to dig it out to see its condition. Im a good hour from Gardner though so that might be too far for you.

For the right price I may be willing to drive an hour. If you don't mind check it out.

What are the dimensions of a 30 Long? I'm familiar with the 30 Breeder and the standard 30 but not the 30 Long.

I know I LOVE my 33 Long (48" x 12" x 12").

If i remember right the dimensions of my 30 is approximately 36x13x16. Is that just a regular 30 and not a long?

many many MANY years ago (when dinosaurs roamed) I know many stores called the tank most of us know as a 29g tank a "30 high" (30" long).
A "30 long" was 36" long

I still have customers with 29g tanks who call them 30.

I guess I was miss informed, the 48"x12"x12" is what I am looking for, was told it wa a 30...but this is the size I am looking for.
I built a stand for 55, which can hold another 55 under it, but forgot to leave room for the lighting, but the 30 (33) would fit great.

The 48x12x12 is 33 gallons by my calculation. Sorry I definitely dont have one of those. Mines the 30. I think I will still pull it out though. Maybe someone else will be interested in it. Good luck in finding the 33long. Definitely an odd size but Im sure someone out there has one.

Keep jumping the gun on posting this, lol. Here is a place to buy them (or so it seems). Let us know if you end up ordering from them. I really like the 33g long as well and may end up ordering one.
