Karebear you read my mind lol! Considering it. I will probably do a community tho, who knows. Its on the back burner for now. I think the 40 is just too tall for bettas, which i didnt notice somehow when I bought it. Or maybe it's ok and they'd just hang around the middle and top idk. But I just don't love it for my sorority but I really like the 33 gal I got. But yeah, I can just leave an empty tank just sitting the empty!
It's 24 inches high. The truth is, I was in petsmart and the fluval studio set that I had been lusting over for months was on clearance, so I bought it, telling myself that the 40 gal that I had purchased not 24 hours earlier was "too tall.". Haha. The new tank (33 gal) is about 18 inches high. Maybe I'll do two sororities. Lol. I'm pretty sure the spare tank isn't going to go to waste. Thanks for the info regarding height. I guess females could probably handle a taller tank?
