Last year I decided it was finally time to set up my "big" tank. I talked to
people on this list, looked at the available tanks and made sure I had my
priorities right. To get the best shape and the best fit to my space
available I decided on a custom-built 5'x2'x2' tank.
The tank is on it's stand; I have the filter, I've order the Flourite. CO2
and lighting are next. But even now I can say one thing for sure. A tank
that measures 2 feet (or more) front-to-back takes a big bite out of whatever
space you put it in. That's a major concideration.
