next to my currently cycling 29 gallon community.
sorry about the mess in my room. im a teenager and i dont know what clean your room means :)
this makes my 5th tank if you include the 1 gallon torture tank :D
Why not go for BIG?! The main reason for making your own tank is to affordably acquire a big ol' tank that would be cost prohibitive to purchase retail.
HAHA I have a 1 gal too. It breaks all the rules;-).
It is hard to build large tanks. Its easy to build small tanks. With large it gets expensive, you need to buy thick glass often tempered which can be expensive. The aquarium silicon normally available for the hobbiest can go to 30gal or 18" high. Its always easier to build small tanks with free glass. You might as well buy a large tank second hand.
