Those of you who have 6-footers, do you think that's a problem, or was
that just my odd sense of things?
As an alternative I'm considering different sizes. I'd like to use
something longer than a 4-foot tank because the space available is bigger

maybe 5 feet long by 22 inches high by 18 inches front-to-back - about 100
gallons. Does anyone know of a company already making something that size?
How about lighting? A five-foot tank seems like a natural for two MH
