What tanks have the same footprint as a 76G tank?

Basically what the subject says. What other tanks can use the same stand & hood as a 75G tank, 48"x18"?

Thanks,
Scot

yes there is a 110. 48x18x31 It is sold as a show tank. Extremely hard to plant unless you can swim in it.

I read a while ago on all glass aquarium's web site that they make semi custom tanks -- basically they will adjust the hight of any of their existing tank footprints.

I have a 110 tall with that footprint and yes, I have to go swimming in it to plant anything. It's also a little too shallow to get good depth so you have to be careful how you plant it. If you decide to go with something that big, make sure you reinforce the stand if its only designed to hold a 75 gallon.

110 Tall in progress!
