Hi all. First time poster long time lurker.
I have an opportunity to get a new tank, but a weird size of 40"x 10.5"x 20" which is about 39 gallons.
I;m concerned about the width (10.5").
Would I be able to use a tank like this for small GBR
's (first choice) or apisto;s with tetras and cories.
I kind of like the size but am worried about the width.
This tank would never hold large fish....dont want them.
Any problems in stocking the following in this tank;
2 pairs of gbr
8 emperor tetra;s or 8 rummy nose
6 cory cats..type to be determined by higher temp needed for rams.
Heavily planted with wisteria and green cabomba with caves and driftwood
With this stocking list, can I get away with HOB
filters or is my bio load too much and require a smaller canister? I prefer hob
;s. Less chance of flooding issues. I am away just about every weekend.
P.S. would this be classified a breeder tank or a grow out tank, or just a weird size?
Thanks for all your input,
