    ;D Ok there's the general rule of thumb to have 1 inch of fish fish per gallon in your tank. But what about a rule of thumb for the size of tank you should get for the size of your living space? :D

    Should it be 1 gallon per every 100 square feet of your apartment or house? Or what do you think? ;)

    I think the rule of thumb is get as many tanks or biggest tank as you can fit! Get the biggest tank you can for each area! ;)

    If I had my way, I'd create a tank large enough to cover an entire wall of the family room......LOL!!

    It's more about personal space, but you also have to consider the weight of the finished tank......
