What tank to get

Hey everyone, setting up a new tank and was going to go with an aquamaxx 60something gallon tank, but canít find them anywhere cuz they are sold out and aquamaxx isnít makin them. So then I thought I Thought bout getting a deep blue tank, but they are out of business and I donít know how tall their stands are (if anyone knows please tell me). Donít want an aio or any tank with overflows, afraid it will clog. What other tanks are good quality, rimless thanks everyone.

ADA, UNS, Mr Aqua. If you are afraid of the overflow clogging you can run a pipe system with a backup drain.

Aquarium, Pond & Water Garden, Fountain and Commercial Aquaculture Products ? LIFEGARDģ AQUATICS Ľ Product Detail

Lifeguard Aquatics tanks just started showing up at my LFS. You can get them with or without an internal filter. The internal filter is slightly shorter than the tank so it will overflow into your aquarium if it gets clogged.

Other good brands would be ADA and UNS. The UNS seem to be pretty reasonably priced if you do some searching.
