50 gal Hex

is 60 dollars worth it for a 50 gal glass hex tank (tank only)?

I'm not a fan of hex tanks. A hexagon is not a great shape for fish. You could get a larger rectangular tank for the same money on Craigslist.

I have a 60 gallon hex- and even though many people dont like them. I like mine (had over 10 years) and thats a decent price imo.

Good luck with whatever you decide!

great to hear about your hex

thanks, after I got it established I really like the shape. It is a corner tank,
there is just no other way I couldve had a 50 gallon tank in my tiny apartment!

Right now theres a rainbow boesmani, dalmation molly, some gold tetra, bloodfin tetra, and rasbora.

I have a tall "wood"piece and a sort of "tunnel" made of rocks right now.

how does yours look?

Sorry for the late response! I have mine as saltwater actually. I have a couple clown fish and a damsel in. I plan on doing some easy corals too. I really really enjoy/like mine. Make sure you post some pics! I am glad you like yours!

I got a 55g for $40 last fall. Just put in the saltwater and sand...having to go slow, not from patience, but due to lack of funds. I'm curious how yours (and mine) will turn out!
