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!

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!

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
