ok, thanks for the input everyone. I realized the other night that the 75 gallon tank has good dimensions compared to my old 90... I sure wish I had kept my solid wood stand and hood now. It would have been the cheapest way back into an aquarium. pooey. Oh well... the stupid things we do when moving cross-country right?
I want a smaller size because in my current house I don't have a place to hook up a python, so I believe I will have to haul water in 5 gallon buckets. I checked many local pet stores today and could not find a single 50. 29s, 55s and bow front galore!! So... I'm thinking 40 breeder will have to do it. As long as I stay away from monster tall plants it should be ok.
So, I'm sure I will post more later.
