    Yeah, big fish need big tanks. 40 tall is a bad footprint for the big guys. A 55 gallon is the start of getting big fish. 75 is even better ;D

    used tanks are cheap and if you like DIY leaky tanks are cheaper. If you get a used tank and are not bill gates i would defaintely go used. Just always ask that they can have at least 4 inches of water in it to prove that it doesnt leak.

    For your filter (assuming it's an HOB) it can only filter at most a 20 gallon.

    For hang on back filters, like penguin bio-wheels and the like, it is recommended that it has 7-10x the GPH as the size of your tank. So ideally, for a 40 gallon you'd want 400 GPH filtration.
