So far we have almost a perfect Bell curve. Very good poll making bearfan. Its hard to get such a 'model' result.

I voted 76-100 since myar largest is an 80.

I was noticing the data was quite a bell curve. No one over 200 yet.

Well, I'll probably break the 200 if I can get my cousin to build me my dream aquarium [ 14feet long, 4 food wide, 3 foot high ]

Man, cleaning a 3' High would be a PIA. From my armpit to my fingers is 2'-6" (I just measured), and I'm 6'-2". Doing simple geometry, to reach the middle of your tank:

Using Pythag's Theorum:

a^2 + b^2 = c^2
2'^2 + 3'^2 = c^2
13sf = c^2
c = 3.605'
c ~ 3'-7"

So if you were standing at your tank and wanted to reach the bottom of the tank in the middle, you would have to reach 3'-7" from your armpit to your finger tips.

Now, assuming a 4" DSB

a^2 + b^2 = c^2
2'^2 + 2.66667'^2 = c^2
11.111sf = c^2
c = 3.333'
c ~ 3'-4"

You would degrease the required reach by 3".

You forget that vac tubes can be as long as two or three feet by themselves, cutting how far you have to reach dranaticly
