Oooooh! Make it HUGE then! Also, make sure the plexi glass is thick enough to with stand what size you choose.

**nod** I just need to get the depth figured out. I want to make sure my girls are comfortable in their home and can get to the surface in a decent amount of time, but also don't want to make it too shallow >.< The width is easy.

If you want it proportional to a standard 10g make it 30 inches high. If you want it shorter, make it 15 (It would still be taller than a 10g, but not by much)

How many gallons do you want? A tank like that could house multiple male Bettas 0.0

I dunno. Lol. I just wanted to make an awesome home that could house the bettas and make them happy and such. 15 inch depth doesn't sound terrible.

Something like that... That's more than 150 gallons. (150 gallon tank measurements: 48x24x30) probably something around 160-170.

I didn't think logical. The place where I read it must have been off, um never mind.

And I'm too lazy to do the math now of your tank... Lol. I have to stop using links on google as referances.

Okay, so my math is dumb faced, lol. I just realized that if I was only multiplying the -length- by 3 that it would make it 30 gallons. But I'm multiplying the length and width. Which changes things. It's going to be like 5 feet long by 2.75 feet wide... This should be FUN! I get ta play with power tools!
