    Re: I WANT THIS TANK!!!!!!!

    Lol i have my laptop/tv desk that i can clear off and the tank would fit perfectly on it with a little extra space, so i hope the desk would hold. If i were to get it would cichlid's get along with the pleco?

    yeah they should, most fish ignore plecos. Arapima are the only ones I have heard of eating a pleco. If they are africans you will definetly be fine. That is unless your keeping buttis.

    Ok, i figured that, i would probably have to wait until the fish sold then. Now my desk is near a large window, would i need to move it because of the sun?

    I've heard countless stories of African's eating the eyes out of plecos and eventually dying or killing them.

    WOW, that's horrible, so i deffientley would wait until the pleco sold.

    Gah i hope this tank is sitll available, and i'll just really have to beg and plead to my parents. And all i really need there help with is bringing the tank upstairs to my room, and if need be, rearaging the furniture in my room.

    Never once had an African as much as look at a pleco. Esp if the pleco is larger than the africans.

    What about a tanki I found in Orange County? i'm kind of leaning more towards it because this one comes with the matching stand and an actual hood for about $100. Whereas the other one i would have to invest in a new stand since my parents think that my desk won't hold the water. My only worry is the Oscar, I wonder if they would sell it separately.

    the only problem I have run into with my 55 is that it simply isnt wide enough. But with that said that looks like a great tank, and 100 bucks isnt bad maybe you can offer them a little less and give the oscars away of sell it.

    Re: I WANT THIS TANK!!!!!!!

    ok, i've also e-mailed a person about a 60 gallon tank, i'm hoping the tanks aren't all to wide as they will be placed in my bedroom, right next to my 20 gallon tank. And my only problem with the first tank that i liked is that even though it came with all of the super nice accessories, i would have to invest in a stand, and those can get expensive.

    Re: I WANT THIS TANK!!!!!!!

    If you get one of the larger tanks you mention you can turn your 20g into a sump for it. That would hide all the accessories and leave you more room in the tank. I know Wal-mart and Petsmart have stands that are fairly reasonable...also craigslist is a great place! What about e-bay--I see a bunch of aquariums that come complete with stands on there (you'll just have to search by distance)?
