Talking What made you deside to get the size tank you have

What made you deside to get the size tank you have? i wanna hear stories how you ended up with the size tank you have and why. my storie is i started out with a 10gal nano fro the lfs, and i desided that it was to small then went with a 75gal, and my fish started to get to big, so i found a buddy that was selling his 120gal, so i got that, and about a month ago i wanted bigger, so yesterday i sold my 120g, and i found a 180gal ( thanks to CaptainAhab) in philly so i hopped in my truck and went, now im setting up a 180gal today, i will post pics of the build

I have three tangs so I wanted to get me a 6 ft tank so they would have plenty of swimming room. That`s why I have a 125 gallon tank.

It was as big of a tank that would fit in the space I had at the time.

I got the 90 so I dosing was easier (no more a half thred of this or that) and for the stability the added water volume adds.

I got a 180G because the powder blue tang in my 40G wasnt going to be happy. I added an orange shoulder tang and yellow tang which all are happy.

Got myself the 65 gallon tank because it was the best looking tank in the store. If I could, I would go back and custom make a 100 gallon one with the same look. Will upgrade soon.

I went with my 55 gal tank because I already had it from my FW setup. Once I learn the ropes of maintaining my new reef tank, I plan to go up to 150-180 (wife allowing anyway lol).
