Are you sure it's not 80 gallons? My 75 gal is approx 19 1/2 inches tall from bottom of trim to top of trim along edge of tank. Might be even better deal than you think!

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

I thought of my 55g when I seen the picture...I'd just measure & calculate the volume.

I drove out for this 'awesome' 55g before....well turns out on site someone had a measuring issue and it was a 20 long...big difference

Romad, if you go with the Eheim 2213 I found it on Ebay for $75 shipped. PetSmart has a great deal on it too. If I hadn't found it on Ebay I was going to order it from PetSmart. PetSmart is $86 shipped. Here is a link to the Ebay filter. I'm ordering one today!

Thanks so much!!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

For a 75g I really think the 2217 would be a better choice.

Ooops. I agree with WisFish. I was thinking this was a 55g until I read your first post again. Either the 2217 or the Professional Series Angel recommended.

Thanks folks. It's def. a 75 gallon. I just measured it and it's 48 x 20 x 19.

LisaC, I would gladly pay someone $11 multiplied by 5 or 6 to come and clean it for me first
