Ok, so I have been thinking a while about taking the plunge on a 75 gallon. I have found one on Craigslist after a while of looking that is the right size and in a stand that I really like:
75 Gallon Fish Tank w/Stand
I have already talked to the seller and told him I am not really interested in the fish. They said that is fine and that they know of a LFS
that will take them.
I am hoping to talk them down to 350 or 400 (perhaps just for the tank/stand/canopy). Looking at these retail, this seems like a pretty good (not great) deal (provided it is in good shape of course). Just wanted to get some input on what you guys think.
Also, do you think I need powerheads in a tank this size? Or does it depend on the stocking plan?
Right now the plan I am thinking is a lot of smaller fish.
10 White Clouds
12-15 Cardinal Tetras
10 Cory Catfish
10 Cherry Barbs
6-8 Dwarf Rainbowfish
And then perhaps some fish that can get on in smaller groups (a few Angelfish and/or a Dwarf Gourami or three.
All of that is a long ways off though. Main point is, powerhead(s) or no?
Right now I plan on going with 2 HOB
filters (I was thinking AC110's, total overkill? go with AC70's instead?)
Ok, SO, summary of my main questions:
Is this a decent deal or could I do a lot better?
