Tbh.. i wish i went with a 38 or 40 lol.. i don't really like big tanks. Just watch, i predict this 38G to easily be one of the nicest SW tanks ever. Honestly, just watch.. it will. ;D

See that is why i am asking. Because I don't know if for my 1st SW tank i want to do a 75g. I could do a smaller tank to start out with, probally like a 40g breeder.

personally i like the 50 gallon. same footprint as the 40 breeder but gives you a bit more height. of course then you might need a bit stronger light but i think the scaping abilities are worth it.

I agree nice big tanks are good but the thought of a 5G nano just entrances me.

Meh, 5G is a little too small for my taste lol. That's delving into the nano realm and i'm not to partial to nano's. I really like the 50G's though. Even the 40G breeders are nice for some amazing rockwork. I'll probably wind up having two SW tanks in the future. One 75G and one 38G or 40G like JOM's.

Well I wish I went with the 50g that I originally had planned for, only because of the extra width though. I like the 3ft length though. I do plan to upgrade the tank when I move to probably a 75g, but the 38g is enough for me now.

Some full tank shots since I got the new corals:


(3 actinics, 1 10000K on)


(3 actinics, 3 whites)

You can how small the zoas are in the FTS.
