Down sizing 55 gal to a 36 Bowfront?
I have a 55 gal. glass tank right now but plan on down sizing to a 30 gal. tank. I really like the new style bow front tanks they have now. I want to down size as next year I plan on moving into a smaller home. The 55 gal. only has 15 fish in it now. I plan on getting 1 angelfish next month and that will be all the fish for that tank. 5 Harlequen Rasboras, 5 Red Von Rio Congo Tetras, 2 yo yo loaches, 1 Bushy nosed pleco, 2 Wild Columbian Rams.
I was wondering if anyone out there has a Bowfront tank. Did you like it? Petsmart has a 36 gal. Bow front aquarium kit comes with everything, Aqueon 30 bio/filter, 200W heater, hood, light, water conditoner, fish food all for $169.99. I have a $10 off coupon good til 8-23 on $40 or more purchase and was thinking of getting this kit as it has everything. They also have just the 36 Bow front tank with hood & light for $119.99. I'm wondering if a standard tank stand will fit this bowfront or do you have to purchase a bow front stand? I'm not in a hurry for a new set up as we plan to sell our bigger home next year sometime. I've been looking at Craigslist for one. I only found 1 46 gal. bowfront for $150 with a stand which is a good price but is about the size I have now.If you have a bowfront tank let me now what you think. I can't decide on bowfront or just to go with a 30 gal. with stand.
