Dream Tank??
If you could have any size tank under 1000 gallons what dimensions would you choose??

Heres a few examples:

900 gallon - 96x72x30
935 gallon - 120x60x30
807 gallon - 108x48x36
957 gallon - 96x96x24

What size would you go with?? Make up your own dimensions if you like...I'm building a new one and am looking for insight.

96x96x24 be my choice :-)

If I were going big, I would get as big as I could afford and handle. 957g for me. :wink:

So are you going to have one that big? 8O

Hello to all this is my first post here! :lol:

A 120 gallon to me is the perfect size by staying with a 48 inch length you get the most front to back space to work with...

welcome to aquarium advice sayuncle :-) but if your making one think it be easier to go with a cube myself !

whatever size, i'd just love my tank to look like Steve Weast's tank. Best pic I've ever seen of a reef tank - oh, and btw it makes a really cool background on ya PC!!! (right click, set as background)

How would you ever do anything in the middle of a 96x96? I would also pick that tank, but at only 24" deep I can't think of how you'd ever do anything in it.

i would pile all the rock in the middle and leave the perimeter for fish to swim ect..
chimera love that pic what a great looking tank :-)
