6 foot fish tanks??

I've been doing some research & can't seem to find a simple answer anywhere.

Can someone tell me what sizes a 6 foot tank can come in?

I'm planning on upgrading my african tank this year & DEF want a 6 footer. However, we live in a 2nd floor apt & I really didn't wanna go over 75-90gals (since the house is 150years old lol)

All help is appreciated!!

Thanks friends!!

My 125 is 6 feet long and 18 inches from front to back. I think 125g is the smallest that has a footprint of 6 feet unless you get into special tanks and custom ones.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

As far as "typical" sizes go, 75 & 90 are both 4 footers. To go to a 6 footer, you will be starting at 125g.

Go to aqadvisor.com, and he has a pull-down menu of most available tank sizes in the "dimension" selection, which will then show the measurements.

There is a tank that I have seen at my Lfs. It's 6 ft by 1 ft by 1ft. I think it's 88 gallons or something like that .

I figured it would be a 125gal minimum, & those I've seen. I think they're the same width as my 55gal .. I was hoping there would be a 90breeder or something that was 6foot but I'll probably just go w/ a regular 75-90gal ORRRR since my uncle owns a glass shop, maybe I'll give making my own a shot I could only imagine!!!

Typically anything between 100-210 gallons are going to be 6'.
