I am fairly new to the hobby but am looking into getting a larger aquarium. I found onee on craigslist that seems like a great deal. Just wanted some expert advise. Not sure if it comes with filter/pump/heater. The guy is checking and will get back to me. I am wanting to do an A.Cichlid tank. How many could I keep in this tank and if it doesn't come with pump/filter what would you recommend?
The link isn't working right. "the guy is checking". Meaning he doesn't know what he is selling? That's a red flag for me. If the seller doesn't know exactly what he has but is selling it I'd stay away. Just my 2 cents
Honestly it's a decent price. But it's 54" high. That's way high. Almost 5 feet high unless he is measuring from the floor to top of tank. Even if that is floor to tank top and not the height of the tank the pic shows us it's still a tall tank. Height in a tank doesn't do much unless you're going to do Angel fish. They prefer higher tanks. Wide (LtoR) and depth (front to back) is where you gain surface area which is better than height. I don't know. If it was me I would keep hunting. I don't like real tall tanks. But that's me. Especially at cleaning and water change time. Who wants to stand on a stool to get in the tank? Not me.
hmm... I didn't realize the surface area made a difference. I am wanting to do some African cichlids so this might not work for them? Thanks for the advise. I am just anxious to get one but don't have a huge amount to spend right now:)
