40 gallon long?

Any idea if Petco/smart carries a 40L (48" length)? I have only seen the breeders. I want a $40 40L :/

I'm fairly sure they don't, I've never seen one. I haven't even heard of a 40 long...

I owned one may years ago. It has the same base dimensions as a 55 gal tank, but not quite as tall. I think the reason you don't see them much is that most people seem to prefer a 55.

Considering that the tank is often one of the less expensive parts of a system, and that typically you only buy it once, why not consider something like a 70 or 90 gal tank for the same space? Yes, it will be lots more than $1 per gal, but the 18 inches front to back, really let you go some fantastic aquascapeing.

Well a 75 and 90 are both 48" long, they're just a bit deeper, both at 18.5" front to back, and a taller: 75- 21" tall and 90 is 25" tall. I know if I had room for a 48" tank, I'd go with a 90.

Hmm thanks for the heads up, what kinda lighting would I need for something 25" tall!?

Was just going to do 1 bulb of T5HO for a 55g, it's about 12 3/4" tall.
