Acrylic 125 tank should I upgrade to 135 gallons

I was thinking about replacing my tank ( which I was planning on doing anyways the tank has a few scratches and blemishes) and getting the 135 gallon acrylic tank has the same size footprint all my equipment is rated to handle 150-200 gallons except for the heater which I would probably have to get a larger one is the 10 gallons worth the $200 extra I believe the tank is 4 inches taller anyone's opinion?

If it's just taller I wouldn't do it. If it were longer or wider that's a slight maybe but still probably not for $200 extra. Don't think that 10G is going to enormously effect which types of fish you'll be keeping. Save the $200 and put it toward equipment for the 125G IMO.
