Ridiculous tank

So at the store today, I saw this beast.... It's an 84 gallon like extra tall tank. Made by Seapora. Basically a super tall 65. 36x18x30. Not that it's not cool, but I can't even imagine trying to reach my hands down in there.

I would purchase the heck out of that tank.

Well, if I had the space.

You will definitely need aquascaping tools.
My tank is 24 inches tall, with a 24 inch wide bridge in the middle.
Absolutely impossible to reach the center rear of the tank.
I picked up a, about a foot and a half long gripper, works great.

Jeez. I don't consider myself particularly short at 5'8" but I think I'd need a step stool and a snorkel to maintain that beast.

It's the complete opposite of what I usually like in tanks, but it would look rad as a blackwater tank with a bunch of root-type wood and something small and shoaling.

Edit: or perhaps some sort of central shelved centerpiece and small tanganyikans.

Are you talking about the can grippers for reaching things on shelves? Have a pic? Do they work for planting things, putting root tabs in the substrate, etc? My tank is 26" deep and I've got wet armpits, and can't really see what I'm doing down there. Kinda have to do it by braille. Like thelongsnail I'm 5'8" and never thought I was that short--until it came time to do my first replanting......

I have two tanks at 24 inches deep. I have a short step ladder that is an absolute necessity - being that I am 5'6".
Still, I end up getting my shirt wet regardless.
So, if doing any heavy duty work, just take my shirt off- forget it. Just call me the naked fish-lady- lol!

180 g. low tech w/ wild South American cichlids, corydoras eques, and African Congo riverine tetras.
60 g. low tech w/ F1 Alenquer pair /Stendker "Tefe" discus and wild Altum Angels
30 g. low tech w/ Wild Tucano tetras
30 g. low-tech African Biotope

Lol, fantastic idea! I'd probably follow suit, except my tank is in a window... on the ground floor... on a busy street in Edinburgh

As a guy with a 36" tall tank that has had to drain half of the water, climb a ladder and dangle upside down into the tank to do maintenance, I would suggest not going over 24".
