Looks like a fun project! I wish I had space for more, I have two 29 gallons.
Does the 55 fit on the 29 stand or did you have to buy a new stand too? How tall is it?
Hi, well I needed the 29 gallon stand since all of the fish in the 20 gallon went to the 29g. The 56 gallon tank would not fit on a 29 gallon stand though. I was lucky to find a tank with these dimensions since I have limited space too
I bought this marineland 56 Gallon at Petsmart for $219. $100 off fourth of July sale
It fits perfectly in a small spaces since the length is 30 in (which is 6 in less than a 29g) The tank itself is 24 inches tall and 18 inches deep. The whole tank with the stand is 54 inches tall. I read some of the reviews stating that the silicone seams on this tank would get moisture in them but so far I haven't had a problem. The only two drawbacks I can think of are: 1) the brace right in the middle of the opening on the top (I could not fit a 70 gallon filter in since the brace was in the way, so instead I got 2 50g filters). 2) I think it is going to be a little hard to clean since I have to go in all the way to my shoulder to touch the substrate. But otherwise I would highly recommend this tank if your space is limited... Here's a link: http://www.petsmart.com/fish/aquariu...#RatingsDetail
This will definitely be a fun project though
Since my water parameters already indicate the tank is stable, (no nitrites, no ammonia, nitrate 10), I went ahead and finally completed my school of Roseline Sharks! I have had 2 for about 6 months (which are already 4 inches) and I just purchased three 2 inch juveniles today. Its soooo hard to find them any bigger than 2 inches. They are small but they should catch up to the others. Plus they were $9.99 which is the cheapest I have ever seen them. I'll post a pic in just a few min
