New house and new tank shopping
We are currently in the process of hopefully owning a house soon! Lovely 1,100 square feet with tons of potential for room. Currently in our mobile home, I'm limited to a 36 inch tank due to lack of space. I'm dying to setup a 4 foot tank. If everything works out and we end up moving, I am certainly going to. I'm not entirely sure which size to go with though. I know there are the timeless issues of having a 55 and not enough depth but at this point, I don't really care. I have had a 55 in the past and really enjoyed it.
Here are the tanks I am considering
Petsmart tends to have Marineland 75 gallon ensembles for 300 dollars on sale all the time. So that would be a great route to go. But, I don't know if I necessarily need a 75. Maintenance-wise... I don't know if I have enough time for that. So a 40 long or 55 gallon might be better. Seapora also makes an oddball sized tank which they call a 60 regular. It is 48x15x16 or something like that. Not too bad.
