Red face I feel VERY stupid

Well After really looking at the tank and thinking about it, I realized the tank is NOT a 40 breeder. I actually know the people to used to own it and I've seen it with fish in it. The tank's a 75!!!!! I have no clue why I wanted it to be a 40 gal breeder. Soo yes the deal got even better!!! I want to keep kribs, anybody know good tanks for them?

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

Nice, now with that id consider something bigger, Or you could mix large schools of smaller fish and what not. Grats on the snag btw.

those are great filters and 1 of the model 110's would be plenty for you, it filters 500 gph which would filter your tank almost 7 times an hour, plenty of filter unless your getting goldfish.
Congrats on your new find.
