- - should i get a larger tank? (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/beginner-freshwater-aquarium/should-i-get-larger-tank-13136/)
should i get a larger tank?
i am pretty certain i am getting a larger tank but should i get a 20 or 30?
The bigger the better. You will end up wanting a 100+G eventually, though (we all do). :)
30G for sure.
ok, i would deffinately like the 30 but ill be living in a little dorm soon, would a 30 be too large?
You should always buy the largest tank you can afford and have space for. (If it's your only tank). Larger tanks are much more forgiving water quality wise.
And there're probably twice as many species that can be comfortably housed in a 30 than in a 20.
that would be awesome because for some reason, my water keeps getting extremely clowdy even though i'm doing all the proper cleaning things i know of for my 10g tank
Well, let's start with the basics. What fish and how many do you have in there? What are your parameters (use an API test kit)? What kind of filtration do you use?
i agree, 30 gallons, if it will fit, will be better in the long run. you could try to find a stand that could dual as a bookshelf, and that might save you some space. i have a 30 gallon in my office, and it has shelves, that i put all my books in. it works quite nicely.
the only thing I can say is one tank leads to more and bigger tanks
is there a treatment program for this disease???? :D
deffinately get the thirty. it will fit in a dorm. and like the others said if you get a stand with shelves it will help a lot. mine has shelves although i only keep my fish magazines in it, but it helps space wise.
