i have a size dilemma .

hi all.
now i have a little dilemma in my noggin,and here's where you guys come in....
240l rectangle aquarium 288.50
200l rectangle aquarium 244.99
now i have ordered a filter separately,as this tank comes with only
hood with lights,and the cupboard for it to sit on.
it will be planted,and hopefully be a nice community ,
i have missed having Loaches so i would like to incorporate them into the
equation.
what say all of you.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I second that motion. It keeps you from getting yet another tank as fast.

You'll regret not buying the bigger one ever time you look at it...

you're so right.
and as usual i went to bed thinking about it,and i've woken up thinking about it.
and thinking about the possible substrate choices....i think i want to go
darker this time round,but incorporate sand as well,as i want catfish,and
it's kinder on their barbells.

Nobody's life, liberty and happiness are safe when Congress is in session. Hallyx kindly reminded me that this statement is attributed to Mark Twain. Even more pertinent today then when he said it.
