Tank size 55 gallon vs. 60 gallon. 20" vs 24" of height
Hi. So I currently have a 20 gallon non CO2 planted tank but I am ready to upgrade to a bigger one. I had been looking at getting a 55 gallon tank for a while but then I had a friend who just gave me his 60 gallon tank with a stand because he was moving. The only dimension difference in these two tanks is the 4" added height on the 60 gallon (20" on a 55 gal and 24" on the 60) and I know that height can be a big deal with lighting. I want to do another non CO2 tank and I am probably going to go with the Finnex Planted Plus LED light to get in the low/med range lighting. I can use the filters he gave me with either size tank. I havent set up the new one yet so its empty right now.
So the main question I have is it worth fooling with "trading out" a 60 gallon for 55 gallon to get rid of that added height before I set it up? Or do you think that 4 inches of height wont make that much of a difference?
