55 Gallon Salt Water or Freshwater fish tank with filter lights ++

Not sure on the deals, I just wanted to throw out that a 90 gallon is also a 4 foot tank. Bigger is always better!

I really liked the idea of the 75 and measured where it was going to do and the 18" deep isint to bad of a fit. I'd be a bit worried to go any wider cuz I wouldn't be able to squeez in front of it

90's are 18" wide they're just 24" high instead of 20" like the 75. The longest I can go is 4 foot, so I've been looking into them myself

Are you doing a reef tank? if so, a 75 is a better tank than a 90. The top few inches of the tank isn't used anyway, and you are just going to have to penetrate that much more water and reach that much further to get to the bottom to do maintenance.

Yes I do want to do a reef tank. It will be in time but first step is the tank. Then the parts I need little by little. So stick with a 75? What about the 55. Is the few inches wider a huge difference?
