I say go with the one you can most comfortably afford. Bigger tank = bigger $. It doesn't make sense to go big if you can't afford to get good equipment and do what is needed for upkeep. i once had the go bigger mentality until i got to a 210 gallon and i could not comfortably afford to buy what i wanted. i've since then downsized to a 100 g and can afford to do just about anything i need to do to the tank. i got really good equipment and it made my life easier to deal with the tank and i can deal with the unexpected expenses of the tank. JMHO. bigger isn't necessarily better.
