Big tank or small tank?
 
I was thinking about getting another tank, and Im not quite sure what size im going for yet. I was thinking either a 10, 20, or 30 gallon.

So ide like to hear your opinions on what size of tank is easier to maintain, a smaller tank or a larger tank?

My advice is to get the biggest you can afford. Larger tanks usually are easier to maintain and easier to stabilize the water parameters.

I second Lupin's advice. Get the biggest tank. Easier to keep stable.

i agree. bigger is easier, even though it sounds contradictory- its true. but if you are experienced already, you might be ok with a smaller thank. i would NEVER go smaller than 10 gallons.

as big as you can fit and afford.
