Should I Swap Tanks?

Ok so I have my 17G salt water tank up and running, no fish/coral or/CUC yet. I decided to look for a quarantine tank for when i'm ready to add things, found one on facebook for about $20 USD ( I'm in Aus, tanks are more expensive here), picture showed a filthy tank that looked to be about 2 feet long. Upon looking at the tank I discovered it was in fact a 3 foot tank, 32G, I gave it a quick clean and it came up almost brand new, I've just filled it up to test if it holds but i'm pretty sure it will as it does not look very old.

So my question is whether i'm better off using this tank as my main tank and using the 17G as a quarantine? I'd need to buy some more dry rock etc. But everything else I have should transfer over.

I'll also need to modify my stand but that's not really such a big deal. I can grab an additional light at a later date as well.

Thoughts?

Bigger is always better especially regarding fish tanks. More options & easier to maintain stable water parameters. Go for it & be sure to post pics.

Definitely go for the longer tank, it will increase fish stocking options quite a bit for you as well (ie Pygmy Angel, Lubbock's Fairy Wrasse, etc.)
