water volume: 55 vs 40b
last night I "upgraded" to a 40b over the existing 55 due to location it was being placed as well as nicer dimensions.
In doing the switch I used all the water, substrate, plants, driftwood, filter and heater from the 55. I just previously placed that tank there with water level right below the rim.
Now after placing everything was placed in the 40b, the only remaining thing was a 6gal ace hardware bucket not even filled all the way.
I always knew the listed gallons were not exact but damn, water. Volume is no longer a pro IMHO anymore for the 55 over a 40b. I honestly didn't have any more excess water laying around.
