aquarium size ok for large cichlid community?
Folks I have a dilemma...I have 16 beautiful s.a. cichlids including Jaguar, GT, firemouths, flowerhorns, red terrors, convicts...in a 75G right now and I'm shopping around for a bigger tank. Today I came across a 60Lx36Hx18W 170G tank for really cheap and need opinions on whether or not to buy. It's just the tank and the stand for $150-200, no filter, gravel, cover, or light. The thing that concerns me is that it has height instead of length. It's 5' long so its good but is it great for the fish I have? It's super cheap for the size but idk if I should hold out for a deal with a longer wider tank with all the accessories for more money or buy this and use the stuff I have and just sell my other tank minus the stuff I had to use for the bigger tank...HELP!
