55 or 70??

I have a 55 gallon and 70 gallon tank. The 55 is 3 inches taller but isn't very wide. The 70 is a lot wider. It 3 inches shorter. It's only 15 inches tall. What would yall think would be better for saltwater? I'm afraid that all the fish would be in the back where you couldn't see them

Definitely go bigger! I was in the same position almost a year ago and I am so glad I got the 75 over the 55(thanks to the advice from people here!)

I now want to go bigger! But 75 is good for me ATM, if you have the space and money for the 70, I'd go for it!
