I want to move my 20 gallon tank downstairs to relieve heat issues along with some other problems. I came up with a plan. Its only a 20 gal
. tank and it is scratched up etc. So I thought it would be just as easy to buy a new tank and a nicer stand to put in the living room downstairs. This way I can move everything from one tank to the next, rock, sand, water etc and hopefully avoid any ammonia and/or loss of bacteria issues.
Now here is the dilema...I go to the LFS
to price the new 20 long and stand. Don't you know it that the 20 long tanks are right across from the 46 gal
bowfronts and the 55's and the 125's etc. Now a 46 gallon bowfront isn't THAT much bigger than a 20 gallon is it? Do you think my fiance would notice that the new tank was just a LITTLE bit larger. If I'm going to buy a new tank anyways, wouldn't it make sense to just get the 125...how can I disguise a 125 to look like a 20 long? Do you think she would notice?
