    From newbies to experienced hobbyists, from time to time the thought of a new, larger tank crosses our minds.  Whether we want to try new varieties of fish or just want more of them, the thought of a larger tank is always "bubbling" in our heads.  Here's a chance to cast a vote and express you tank desires.  Share your thoughts, as we are all interested!  :D

    Tanks with a larger volume of water are more stable and less likely to crash.

    I would love to have a 125 gallon tank to house various types of cichlids.  I love their colors and personalities.  A 125 gallon tank would allow me to have a wide range of types and sizes without the worry of overt aggression.  Hiding places would be plentiful as would be territories for the less amenable.  Just where would I put it is the question!  :D

    :'(I am going to vote but of course I cannot have any of them (too big) I am having a hard time finding room for the things I moved out of the room for my 5 and 3 gallon homes for Azul and Noel. Bless you all that can have the large tanks . I shall depend on you to keep sending in those beautiful pictures so I can OOO and AAAH-HHH over them ;D.

    Have a good day.

    Same for me. I would lov to have a 55 gallon but there is no space in my house so I guess I have to stay with my 10 gallon tank. :-[

    Eventually would love to have a 250 G. My Clown Loaches and my Plecos will need a larger tank and that would be perfect. Also as Dino said larger tanks are more stable and the more stable the water parameters are the happier they will be.

    The GCAS has on it's Trading post, a 150 gallon tank and stand for $450. Oh, just the thought of it absolutely thrills me! But where would I put a 6' long tank that weighs in at least 1250 pounds with just water in it? Dino said it starts with a 20' by 50' concrete pad...........

    And you know Santa(Dino) is always right ;)

    I probably could make the space for some 100 gallon tank in my home right now, but I honestly would NOT have the time for it (plus my 30 and 10 gallon tanks). Besides, if I set it up now, it would be difficult to move it - and I am still in college and live with my parents, but would like to move out once I am done with my education. That's why it's not a good time right now for me to set up a huge tank.

    But of course, I'd love to have the biggest tank I could get! I'd like at least a 75g. And I am resolved to get one like this once I have my own house, so that I'll be sure there won't be any moving out anytime soon. And, lol, I'd have to make sure the floor is strong enough to hold so many gallons of water!

    The reasons for which I'd love a huge tank are obvious: more space and freedom for my fishies, ability to have more fish (and I like so many of them!), the infinite possibilities of aquascaping (I love to decorate a tank), and a beautiful view in my house - a little piece of nature at my own place, which is such a pleasure to look at!

    i own many tanks of various sizes.. so i just voted for 75+ cuz i'd like to have a matching 125g.... i love the one i have, so to have 2 is just twice the fun... it would be REALLY awesome to have a 500g tho!!! :;banaman

    When I move into a bigger house I would like a 250 gallon tank where I could mimic a complete biotype with all sorts of fish. Of course I may never have room for a tank this big but I can always wish !!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    150 and have it be a saltwater reef. but chances are my next will be a 55 ish freashwater.

    I was really looking into a 110-190g tank for awhile - plenty of room for a nice aquascape and beable to host all the community fish I want but its just not realistic. I think a 75g would be perfect given I have the space for it. Nice size with plenty of room for a pair of angels, a school or two of some barbs and of course some catfish but without getting too far into the rather expensive equipment zone, at lest I'd like to think anyways. Anything larger than that and I think I'll just have too much on my hands - far to many stocking options for my tiny little mind to comprehend.

    I've had a 55 for a long time and now find myself pining for a 125, just have to get some bills under control first.
  17. Angela_96Well Known MemberMember

    Well, since we just set up a 55g I have to say we would be wanting a 125+g tank next... We love oscars and to have a proper oscar tank you need the room for them. However we do live in a doublewide and it would not support a tank that large so we have to stick with the 100g and smaller...

    Oh something in the region of 500 gallons would be nice (working on that ;D) as a saltwater reef tank. Parameters would be more stable, would be able to keep more fish ;) >:D and the pleasure would be priceless :;lg

    As big as possible. ;D
    Course I gotta find a bit of $$ first. :p
  20. COBettaCoupleFishlore LegendMember

    75+.. I'd like two 120g tanks. One for a SW tank and the other for Oscars. :;th
