    Awesome, I want one that big, I could do a ton with a tank that big. My husband would probably kill me if I told him I wanted one that big. He thinks my 10 gallon is big enough. He has to build me a stand and the bigger the tank the bigger the stand he has to build. I am trying to get either a 20 long or a 29 gallon tank before he builds the stand.

    If I had gotten something that big, my problem would be where to put it. I been looking to upgrade (yet again) and see a 150g on craigslist for $120 (which would be too bad) and did come with a stand, but Christmas is around the bend, so had to pass it up this time around. URGH!! Guess I should pay attention to getting things for the holiday's and not spending all my money on the crabs at the moment. Little guy here would like something for Christmas and its been a rough couple of years for my son, so I do try to make holiday's extra special.

    Thanks- Hubby had to build me a stand since none came with it. It has had a few owners I think

    I had the 2-75G's side by side so its actually smaller to me (viewing wise) and I like the extra room in here LOL.
    When I went house shopping it was pretty sad to say that the house had to accomadate all my tanks - I was lucky to find this place- cause the rest of the house could use some more storage!!!!!! :D

    PS I am ready to move now (dont like it here)- I will have to go thru this again someday! :eek:

    GEEZ! I wish I could say I'm downsizing to a 100 gal. :p

    Your tanks always look great! I would think the bubblers on both ends of that monster would provide great balanced humidity!

    I love how your sand looks as pure as the driven snow. Some how you just don't get that same effect with eco earth. Beautiful tat. Do you thinkyou can come by an design one for me?

    Your sand does look really pretty. Do you moisten your sand like a lot of others do? I know that some people are now leaving their sand dry. Just curious!!

    Hermez, your tank looks crabtabulas ( is that a word lol)? I showed my two sons (ages 19 and 11) pictures of your tank - all they could say is "wow, wish our tank looked that good". Feel addiction slowly setting in lol....your tank looks amazing
