Small tank ideas.

Hey guys, I saw a small all glass rounded corners tank that looks sweet at my lfs for awhile now. Well guess what there on sale!!!! I love sales...anyway I think I'm at least allowed to buy one even if I'm not allowed to set it up. Now I have a 30 gallon reef, have kept quite a few freshwater tanks. I've also kept Fire bellied toads and currently have a leopard gecko and a crested gecko. I'm going to be getting a viper gecko soon!!!! So yeah basically I have waaay too many pets haha.

So yeah I'm no noob but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas they could shoot my way. Imagine one of these but not so small and doesn't have a base to it. The one I'm looking at is around 12 gallons. So yeah run by any ideas you have fresh, salt, amphibians, reptile etc. I had a bad experience with hampsters (petsmart told me they were both female. I think you can imagine where it went from there.) So ... NO small animals.

thanks in advance for any cool ideas!!

oh and I just wanted to add, the aquarium would have a open top seeing as you couldn't really put a lid on it and it doesn't come with one.

Hmm, well if you couldn't put a lid on it I'd recommend 1) NO JUMPERS and 2) no fish sensitive to increased hardness, salinity, etc. as you will have faster evaporation in a topless tank. Also, make sure the tank is not in a room where any air fresheners etc. are sprayed, or you may find yourself with a very suddenly dead tank.

How tall is this tank? I'm just wondering what the dimensions are for it so I can get an idea of what fish would be happy.

Ehh I dont have the dimensions handy , but its probably like 20-24 inches tall or so and like 15 inches long. Probably like 12 inches deep. THATS really rough, but it's taller then it is long. I knew i couldnt get any jumpers though haha thats a given
