(Poll) How big is your biggest fish tank? (In U.S. gallon)
What is the size of your biggest fish tank in U.S. gallon?

Only the biggest one. Smile

Need help to calculate the size?

Here is the tank size calculator.

In your reply post,
Please also list its actual dimensions.

Start with myself.
My biggest aquarium is a Seaclear acrylic 40 gallon tank. Manufacturer rated it at 40 gallon, but its true size is 36" (long) x 15" (wide) x 16" (high) = 37 gallon. With the space above water level, and the room for the substrate, the actual water inside is probably around 30 gallon.

My next step up will be something along the line of

48" x 18" x 24" (high) = 90 gallon

or

48" x 20" x 24" = 100 gallon

I feel my current tank is too shallow, not long enough, and not wide enough lol. With the upgrade, I will be able to get a whole lot bigger school of fish, as well as more species! Taller plants too!

The upgrade won't come any time soon though. When it comes, I will retire my current 40 gallon, or there will be too many tanks to take care of.

RE: (Poll) How big is your biggest fish tank? (In U.S. gallon)
How much should a 30 gallon tank cost? I am buying a used one for 20 (or maybe 15 if I can haggle it down a bit). As a student, my budget is very low. Also, is a 30 gallon is good for 4-6 small angelfish (0.5in to 1 in) Im planning to raise 4 or 6 angelfish and maybe breed them. My local pet store buys the small fry once they grow to the size of a penny (actually, I get store credit, but its good enough for me), so I won't have a overstocked tank (unless my starting fish are too much of course Rolleyes )

According to Petsmart, a 29 gallon tank with the hood combo cost $89.99.

I am sure petsmart does not have the best price.

A 29 or 30 gallon is too small for angelfish. Angelfish has this tall shape that they require tall tanks. The dimensions of the 29 gallon is 30 1/4"L x 12 1/2"W x 18 3/4"H. Not tall enough if you minus the substrate and the space above the water.

Aren't all the tanks the same? They don't make different tanks for fish or reptile, do they? Wink

Ooh, the tank is the same, it's just not necessarily a "fish" tank, lol.
