As big as will fit in your stand is your best bet

A 40 breeder would probably work well if you can fit it!

Hey Brian. I dobt think a 40 breeder will fit. I think it will be to wide for my stand. That would be great though.

I had an idea but not sure if it would work. I thought about connecting 2 20 gallon long tanks via bulk heads. Do you all think this would work?

Yea that would work, I have seen some configurations like that, and plan to do the same thing with two 30s. Fortunately mine are acrylic so cutting the holes won't be an issue. I have not done it but have heard cutting glass is easy.

Yes it is easy. Just get a really good hole saw for glass, keep the water hose on it and let the bit do the work. A good glass bit is definitely not cheap tho.

Cutting glass is very easy. Just let the weight of the drill do the work. Dont put a lot of pressure on it. Due to the cold weather i did mine in my living room with a bottle of water and a towel on the floor.
