Maybe you will find something even better than you thought possible, I did with my 72G. I thought I would be upgrading with a 46G bowfront and for the same $ I got a 72G like new! And after I had been frustrated for several months since every single one of the tanks I found and called on had already been sold.

that is why I have a dedicated fish room
I'm still moving things around still need to move my feeder tank it blocks my hex tank and than find room for my frag tank and the sump is going in the basement once I finish building it, thinking of putting the feeder under the 40gb since theres nothing down there yet
my wife hates me cause I start another tank once I finish building one lol yes I'm addicted
guess I could just say it's my above ground man cave lol

This isn't with my tank, but I did an educational demonstration presentation today over water changes for my public speaking class. It felt good to try and educate the public about why PWCs are so important.

organized lmao
you just don't see all the junk on the other side of the room

I used a piece of tank back ground black side out on the wall and tacked it over all the wires to hide them behind the tanks
but in reality I have more wires than I know what to do with lol there just all combined into 1 BIG pvc pipe painted black running along the floor to the outlets
