I'm 3" shorter than you are George, and I don't have any trouble maintaining
my 30 x 30 x 84 inch tank.  Reaching to the very bottom of the tank is
difficult of course, but generally I only need to reach a short distance
beyond the top of the substrate, of which I have about 5".

something in the universe, or in the unconscious responds as if
to an invitation.  - Jean Shinoda Bolen
