Let me know if it works I'll try it on my wife. LOL. Never, never, ever give up a tank, but that's just my opinion. Good luck. Sounds like Mr. S is finding out a way to get Mrs. S to Ok something he wants also. Just love larceny. LOL

YES! I converted centimetres into feet and got almost exactly the same as your 30x12x18

So will have the same footprint and volume as you have.
Works out as 145litres, apparently, which is twice what the current tank has. But not twice the footprint. Too deep for a betta, I would imagine? But lots more water volume.
Can't wait.

Thanks for that, and the pics. Gives me a good idea of what I have to play with, and to aim for.

Also, having just imported a 20 inch Finnex Planted plus for the old 15g I couldn't possibly get rid of the tank, could I? Simply doesn't make economic sense, does it? haha!

70litre tank: (Kham) mature setup; betta, purple rasboras, amano and wood shrimp. Heavily planted.
22litre cube tank: (Tagawa); betta, 1 amano, yellow dwarf shrimp. Pond snails and 1 assassin. Heavily planted.
57litre cube tank: ember tetras, 2 amano, 1 nerite, pond snails, 1 assassin, doing his thing. Heavily planted.
200litre tank; honey gourami, cherry barbs, green neons, otocinclus, nerites, pond snails, amano. Heavily planted.

No, makes no sense at all. LOL A 29 gal (145 liters) dose make a good community tank. And with the right tank mates, and heavily planted tank with high plants in background for resting places You could easily use it for your betta. I did that with Harry for a few months and decided to use my 10 gallon Nano tank for his forever home. He was the king of his tank. So more plants and the right mates you will have one beautiful tank that Mr. S. will be proud of and not think of shutting down the other.
