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

    i was looking up show tanks, and theres a 26 g show and that's also an odd sizing, so do you think it could still be legit

    I have a 40 gallon breeder or show tank, I have never heard of a 43 gallon tank, it could be a 45 though.

    so then if it's a 45 g show, would it then be like a 65 normal tank, but shorter? As the guy says its just like a 60 but shorter

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

    No tank would be that specific size unless you had one custom built. The longest tank you can get would be 4'. I'd honestly look for a 75 gallon tank.

    I bet you could find a 75 with a stand for under $200.00. A 75 gallon tank would be 48 x 18.

    i did end up mapquesting it and its about 40 minutes away, and i e-mailed the person selling it. Lol if i get that tank my room will be totally mismatching. I will have a white dresser and night stand, a light wood colored 20 g fish tank, a black 5 g hex tank, and then the large 75 g all black tank.

    haha lol that's why i want African Cichlids. It sucks that I will only have my tanks and fish for only 2 years since that's when i plan to move out. Hopefully when i'll sell them i'll make some money off of them.
