New Tank Advice!

Hey all! I won a brandnew 4ft 120g glass tank with dual mega overflows of ebay for $250.00. It was from a lfs in tampa fl. I talked with the guy and told him I didnt realize the tank was 4ft. He said he would sell me a 6ft 120g for the same price without the overflows. He said with overflows he would sll for $350.00. My question is this. Should I go with the 4ft or 6ft? I am going to call him and see about a 180g because his prices are good.

Do you think the prices are good?

Also keep in mind that I am probably going to put it in a wall in the living room. Longer would look better right?

TIA!

I'd personally go for the six foot. More surface area. Looks better. IMO

BTW, what Tampa store?

Go with the 6 ft. You could maybe have it drilled.
Great day for you.

Thanks all!! How much does it cost to get one drilled?

He said that he could do a 6ft drilled with 2 megaflows for $350.00. Does that sound reasonable?

Yes Nitrite! He will not ship though. He said he would get me a 6ft not drilles for $250.00. M&M Pets is the store, in Tampa Fl. Do you want to email me your phone # or something to give him?

PS. I'll be over next week with it Qshark!!
