Eclipse System Tanks
 
Hi,

I started some time ago with one of those tiny Eclipse tanks and some Betas. I've since kept upgrading to the next largest Eclipse tank. I've been using the 12 Gallon tank for a couple years now and the main residents are a Bala Shark and a Plecostomus. Both of these fish have grown quite large. They were about 1" long when I got them and they both are about 10" long now. The 12 Gallon tank is fast becoming too small for these big guys and they assorted furniture in the tank.

I've searched for a larger Eclipse tank but have failed to find one. My fear is that the 12 Gallon is the largest they make. I don't have lots of time and lots of money to dedicate to my aquarium and I really want to avoid going the route of building a system, piece by piece. The Eclipse systems have been great in meeting my needs as they are all inclusive and everything you need is right there in one package.

So my questions to you are does Eclips make a complete system tank larger than 12 Gallons? Also, are there any other companies out there that produce a similar product to the Eclipse tanks in sizes larger than 12 Gallons.

Thanks for your help.

Found some things via a google search:

40Gallon Tall Eclipse

65 Gallon

With a Bala and a common Pleco you may need to move to a 100 gallon (next size up in the all-in-one) as these fish get very very large as your experiencing now. The pleco can get upwards of 16+ inches and the Bala can get up to around 14 inches from what I have read.
