pros and cons: 55gal or 29gal
I am literally staring at 2 similar setups and don't know which to keep, and which to sell.
I have a 29 gallon tank and hood sitting on a petco brooklyn stand, and I also have a 55 gallon tank sitting on a petco brooklyn stand. Both are brand new and have only been fill tested. I have waited too long noodling and can't return to the store.
both were bought impulsively at the petco 1$ per gallon sale. Regardless of which one I keep, either will be drilled with a 20high sump. Low tech, low light. I am interested in possibly angelfish and dwarf chiclids.
I am a renter, and will be moving in 2 years. I have changed setups every 1-2 years since starting this hobby. I can *just* fit the 55 along a load bearing wall without crowding the wall ac at my current place. I have never had trouble finding a place for a 30-36" tank in the places I've lived thus far.
what would you do? Pros and cons?
