I plan to fill a new larger tank with low-light plants and a piece of mopani driftwood. I have space for a 55 gallon tank at the very most. I prefer a longer horizontal design, as the surface I am using is 5' x 1'3". It will be viewed from both sides.
Any tips on shopping for a quality tank?
I bought an Aqueon glass 29 gallon at the $1 p/g sale at a local chain. I am concerned about the quality, however the glue appears less sloppy than on the top fin 10-gallon that leaked on me.
New question, should I do any preventative measures to prevent a future leak?
