So I'm working on arrangements to put a large tank in my home. I'm finding though that I'm spending a LOT of money and not doing as much research as I could. I have a couple of questions that I hope someone here can help me with. Thanks for reading.
-Glass or acryllic? Why, or why not?
-I'm using the tank as a room divider, so the thin side will be facing the wall, and the filter in/out will have to be on that side. I can cut holes in a wood stand, but a lot of the larger tanks I'm seeing have support panes on the sides- it's going to look really ugly to have my in/out come that far across the top of the tank, instead of hooking downward.
-I've seen "bullet" tanks, which is pretty much what I'm looking for- but it needs to be rectangle shaped, not round. Can anyone share resources on this?
-I'm wanting to stock with rarer fish. Browsing the forums here, I've found Aquabid.com, any advice buying from there, or any other fish buying resources? One pet I really want is a Mexican Axlotl (huge Dune fan, HAVE to have one).
