If you already have the 3" tank who stop at 50? There are 65/70/75g tanks with the same footprint that will greatly increase your options for very minimal cost

MarkW19, believe me if you have the money go as big as you can. The reason I say this is in the end you will be much happier. I only went with a 55gallon, and at this point wish I would of went with atleast 75. This extra $100 will help you get the fish you want.

I have put a lot into the tank I have, and there is still so much to do. This bigger tank will also help keep it more stable, allow for more stock, and also look better due to the simple fact you can keep so much more. Now if you plan on corals in that tank you will need some nice lights. But then again, thats all part of the hobby

Thanks for the advice guys, it's not a question of money it's space really, I'm going up from a 10g to a 50g, and the 105 only just fitted there really! It'll be a tight squeeze, but I really can't go bigger than 50g.

I'm thinking of the Juwel Vision 180, which seems a really nice aquarium, and comes with some decent T5s.

Understandable about the space. However 75 gallon tanks are usually 48"x18x20". No longer than the 50 unless the dimensions are different.

The tank I'm looking at is 91cm wide (36"), so it's out of the question unfortunately to have a 48".

Will have a rethink on the stocking front. For now, I just need to get the new tank to get the skimmer/UV in there and better filtration, to have a good chance at minimising an algae problem this time round!
