thats good to know.. the 55gal just seems SOoo small, and sucks i wont be able to put as much fish as i would like...
either way tho.. it takes a good 2-3 months to stabilize everything.. next thing i know it'll be time for the 150 gal
one downside is tha i was looking forward to getting that ONE tank.. just looks amazing. everything is already set up and Good to go...
still debating wether i should just get like a 125 gal
instead.. as its normally safe for 125 gals (obviously would be against a wall also)
but is it worth losing 25 gals and being able to get it in a few months or just convert now and buy pieces suitable for 150gal tank
would it be a problem getting the things Suitable for the 150gal tank now, but Would i have to worry about it being "compatible" with ANY 150gal tank down the road
