I've only seen 50 B at a few places.
Actually, Crabby, the larger the tank, the easier the maintenance. You don't have to change the water as often and as long as the tank isn't seriously overstocked, you have more room for error. In a smaller tank, all the wastes and nitrogenous junk builds up faster and we have to change it more often. In a 180, takes much more time for that all to build to a toxic level (again, provided the tank isn't grossly overstocked). 180 stocked reasonably would need maybe a 25-30% change once a month if the filtration was good.
I think . . . yes, I do have potato chips! *crunch*
