Physical Disabilities and Tank Maintenance: Tank size suggestions wanted.
In my early 20's I got big into planted tanks... or as my ex-husband would put it, big into spending money on "one more fish tank we don't need." LOL. Unfortunately, in my late 20's I sustained a series of neck/back injuries that left me unable to perform maintenance on my larger tanks... I got out of the hobby.
Now, in my mid 30's, I have an 18 month daughter, and I really want to set up a tank in our home. My current (read as: much better than that old a**hat) husband is completely on board, but we really on have room for one tank. So, I am looking for suggestions on tank sizes and brands that are not tall. I've seen a 20 gallon long at my local petsmart, but I would really like to have a bigger tank.
Do they make larger tanks that are not as tall as regular tanks? I did some measuring and I could probably get away with maintenance on a tank as long as it wasn't much taller than 16 inches.
What do you guys think?
