Thinking of starting over, which tank?
Back in October of 2010, I bought a 55 gallon aquarium with the intent of putting together a reef tank. At the time I did not know anything about different types of filtration, and as such bought everything based on the recommendation of a 16 year old employee of the fish shop. Now, after months of working on this project, and close to $2,000, I am getting frustrated. My 55 gallon is too narrow, the stand is even narrower, and I want to start over before I invest any more in this 55 gallon.
I am thinking over 100 gallons or more this time, something nice and wide, that I can fit a nice large refugium/sump under with plenty of room.
What size tank do you guys recommend for an awesome reef? I am thinking something 18" wide at a minimum, but 24" preferably. Are there any good online places to buy glass aquariums for a fair price. I found glasscages.com, but their prices seem high.
