The 75g should be less than 24" high I think, its the same as a 55g but its width is an extra 6".

What lights do you currently have anyway? I either missed it or forgot LOL

How tall are you? Do you mind having to go way deep into the tank for maintanence? I am only 5'2" so i have a real problem with depth on these tanks. lol Part of the reason I didnt go bigger than a 125g.

I kinda agree about the price, it seems a bit much for just tank and stand. Have you looked at craiglist in your area? You can get an idea of what things are going for......

Yeah I paid $100 for tank stand and a set of lights for a 55g that i sold for $75. So I paid like $25 for mine. lol

The 75g and 90g will be 48" tanks for sure so a 36" wont fit. Unless you can hang it or something and even then you'll have 6 inches on either side kinda dimmer than the rest of the tank.
