I've said many times .. IMO a 75E ( ~ 48 x 18 x 21) is practically the ideal tank size (40B is my second ideal size). Large enough to allow a lot of stocking options, but small enough that it doesn't dominate a whole wall, PWC's are relatively easy and you don't have to go ridiculously crazy on filtration. Depending on what you stock, a Fluval 405 or equivalent at minimum can handle it ... although an FX-5 or equivalent could be a better option.

BTW ... a week ago at was at a Petland Discounts and they were advertising their own $1.00 / gallon sale up to 75E, Petco only goes up to 55gal. Don't know if you have Petland's by you, if the sale was all their stores or when it ends ... but worth looking.

Lol. All this over a larger tank?

Look- say ill get You the dog if I get my tank. I have a 220 gal. It's only 6 ft long. I have it butted up to my bistro dining room table so it's dinner and a show.

And FW is a heck of a lot cheaper than SW. Trust me. Lol

Ok question. Do I have enough filtration? I have a penguin 350 and a AC 110 running my 55 now. I'm trying to use the saving money tactic so am I good? I have a heater and a spare. Also I have a air pump I have to check what it's rated for. I'd hate to have to buy another one.
