I am Jay from OH. I am planning to setup a new 50-65 gallon freshwater aquarium. The ideal space that I have in my home is narrow and is almost(only 7 inches on the either side) the length of the standard 50-65 gallon tanks. What I would like to know is, is it okay to place my tank in that space or will have issues for the ongoing maintenance of the tank or will I be able to do all the maintenance by standing in the front of the tank? Please let me know from your experiences.
There shouldn't be an issue. I have tanks set next to each other with just inches between. I would make sure to leave enough space between the filter, if it is a hang on the back (HOB) and the back wall. Enough to get electrical wires easily behind.
