Very different. Can I ask how many gallons? Also will this be FW or SW?

it claims to be a 47 tall but it is closer to 45. 30inches tall 21 wide and 18 deep. It is an odd shape but as you can see by the space on the wall, no room to go long. Plans are for FW with yellow labs, p demasnoi and a red-tailed black shark. It'll be my first venture with chiclids as I used to have a 75 with rainbows. Haven't decided on plants just yet but most likely fake ones will be used just due to lack of time to dedicate to a planted tank. Plus I heard chiclids have a habit of up-rooting plants. The other reason I liked the shape is I always found standard tanks on standard stands tend to make you have to bend over to see who's inside. This one is 61" to the top from the ground.

Exclamation New photos-updated

Got some pics of the progress I thought I'd share. Put in gravel, background, filter and heater. The heater is a rena "smart" heater that actually hooks up to the inlet and acts as a pert of the inlet. Eliminates the need for one more long piece in the tank.

Looks great. Is there enough swimming room there for chiclids?

don't think so, pretty much giving up on chiclids all together. As much as I have always wanted and loved them, this tank just will not be enough. My plan is most likely goin g to be a pair of angels, maybe a red-tailed shark and some rasboras... Not set in stone yet though.
