A 120 is really a perfect shape. It would also allow you to keep most of your existing livestock (providing you're not already bursting at the seams, lol).

I stand on a chair to maintain my tank (that I keep right next to the tank) but at least I can reach the bottom of the 24" tank depth (plus the extra for the hood lip). It is rare that I have to take the tongs out to reach for a fallen coral. Most of the time I can just reach in. I rearrange my sand bed with the end of my turkey baster.

Good luck picking "the perfect size"! I wouldn't want a tall tank either.

I have to use a step ladder to get my arm to the bottom of my tank. My stand is also pretty high off the ground though. Go to home depot or lowes and get a nice monster step ladder, that will git er done.

Those step ladders are the trick. They have a platform on the top so you can move around, as well as something to hold onto. The top of my tank is 75" so I know what you mean. 4 people moving a tank is half the fun. If it makes you fell better it takes 10 to move mine.
