Tank?

Should I get a 29 gallon saltwater reef, or a 40 gallon African cichlid tank?

How about 40 gallon reef? The 40 breeders have a better footprint for aquascaping.


I will echo Molson's sentiment on using a 55g for a cichlid tank.

My friend who lives next door has a 40 gallon reef and it is the perfect footprint. 40 gallon reef is the way to go.

Easy question, both lol. Pick up a 40 and a 55 during the $/gallon sale and set up a 55 cichlid tank and a 40 reef.
