Never heard of a 30 breeder. The 40 breeder is a awesome reef size.

I agree do the 40 breeder. Your fish will appreciate the extra height.

Petco was having their dollar per gallon sale. 40 bucks for a 120 dollar tank sounds good to me!!

Well a 40 b setup would probably weigh about 450 even with a 20g sump it would weigh 600ish I would think and if your just running a stand alone the 5 gals would only add 50 lbs with extra sand and rock and water I bet your landlord would work with you or you could just tell them it's a 35 cause whose actually gonna check

True, who's gonna measure, as of right now I'm in the planning stages still I won't set it up until I move to the new place either mid march not later than first week of April also to consider is space moving with roommates leave me no room but I'm my own room
