it doesn't take up the whole wall, so gottat go bigger!! I had one a while back, keeping up the maintenance is the part that sucks. I have managed to kill every fish I ever had. Last time I was doing pretty good, but the house fire boiled them.
its a 55 gal. i always seem to sell off my fish, my old oscars got as big as footballs in my last tank, it was a 150 gallon. decided to go a little smaller this time. yeah the upkeep is a bear sometimes, water changes used to suck lol. but now i got a 2 power filters so i can only hange 1 time a month as long as i keep the ph regula in the tank. this tank going to only hold 4 fish, two tiger oscars and 2 angels. that and guppies for them to eat shouldnt be too time consuming
yep that will work ours is only a 20 gal. I don't have to much problem with killing the fish he won't die, have had a red bellied parana in that tank for 3 yrs (was over 1yr old when he was givin to us), and they told us they only live about 1 yr in captivity always wanted to get a tank like that for him but he's huge now can't imagine how big he would have ended up in that thing.
I've got a 36 gal tank - my wfe take care of it for the most part now - 2 Angels and few other oddball fish. NO OSCARS - they're cool fish - can get 'em to eat from your hand, but they are messy as pigs. Our tank looked like the Mississippi. Had a 12" Oscar and two 14" - 16" Plecostumus (and a 8" feeder golfish that didn't get eaten) They got deseased while we were on vacation - (Took the Sport Trac to Glacier National Park).
After them I got rid of the undergravel filter system and rock and put a fake rock wall for a lizard cage in the bottom instead - and a stronger filter - lots cleaner.
