Okay cool thought it was a little bigger but don't matter now was going over it and notice my back right side has a mega chip to what looks like the silicon on the inside.. dont know how it didnt bust open when it was filled up out my back porch! But after looking around petsmart has a topfin 55 setup lights, cover,heater that looks to be as long as my old tank just ot as wide and a little taller, do you think the old stand will hold it? it's 50" long 17"wide 25"tall made out of what looks to be 2X4. sanding it atm and going to re-stain it. Here are some pics of the stand and of the tank and its chip(clickable thumbnails).
Trying to stay on somewhat of a budget why the $200 price tag on a 55gallon set up seems not to shabby only thing i'm unsur eof is the filter system they give.. its a Top Fin 60 Power Filter with 2 cartridges
and im more a fan of canister filters on larger tanks. They also have a 50 gallon hood/light combo for slightly cheaper $154.99 but i was planning on keeping my dempsey, a black ghost knife and possible a oscer in the tank so the 55 would seem better to me and for what i want. Also want to have it as a semi planted tank with lots of hiding spots for the fish so unsure to use smooth rock bottom, sand or a substrate for the plants like Eco Complete Planted Aquarium Substrate,
So like i said im still a bit unsure over that detail but as always open to suggestions
