29 gal vs 40 gal stocking options
I thought I'd start a new thread here because I think I narrowed it down between the 29 gallon and something like a 40 gallon breeder. I noticed the 40 gal is shorter and quite a bit deeper (36x18x16) as opposed to the 30x12x18 of the 29 gallon, and have calculated the 29 to cost $89 with hood, light, heater, and filter, where the 40 would be close to $200 with the same equipment. Anyways, I just wanted to know the significance of a tank that has such a great width like that, and to see if my stocking options would be that much more if it is worth spending that much more on it. I know they would be on a 55 since it is so much longer, but that is out of the question. And I'm sure I could find a used one on craigslist, but I dont really want to bother with that.
By the way, some fish I have found to like are gouramis, tiger barbs, zebra danios, some types of catfish possibly, maybe an algae eater, and the harlequins I already have. Maybe a combination of some those, or possibly others, if thats doable.
