Not a bad deal considering its now LED instead of fluorescent.

Don't forget $20 off $100 applies to anything online.

Thanks! My cats have been bugging me for a very long time. They want a big fish tank filled with fish.(preferably the kind that they can catch and eat)

Is it wrong if I comply with their demand and get this fish tank? Frown

This is better than the previous versions of the Heartland Aquarium because the cabinet is much larger. Marineland makes great tanks, only gripe with this is that its really skinny.

Not a bad deal, not amazing. Petco is running their dollar per gallon currently and they now include 75 gallons. 75 gallon aquariums have a much nicer footprint that allows for larger fish.

Stand in this is MDF, if you get it wet ever you will greatly reduce it's strength. It's under an aquarium, I can almost guarantee you will get it wet at some point.[/quote]

Buying fish tank on craigslist is much better. Often time, you got a well established tank for peanut

Used tanks vs new, risk is toooooo great for me to want to risk even 60 gallons of water on the floor with a used aquarium. filters and heaters and skimmers and lights now that is a little safer to risk....that is where most of the money spent is anyways......some people don't realize the up cost for must haves

I would really think before pulling the trigger. First of all 4 times a year at least this goes on sale for that price, which is why it is not totally blowing up the deal alert.
2nd unless you are ready to upfront the cost of a decent filter and heater not the cheapest thing you might want to consider this point....
This tanks is nice I owned one for about a year buuuuutttt, it is a pain to clean with the height, it is way to narrow and feels too heavy, you are better off with a 55 gallon because you can reach the bottom. They did update the stand so it can hold a canister filter now so that's good.
My point is that if you are the buyer that is in the market for an aquarium this size DONT BUY IT BECAUSE IT SAYS ITS ONSALE! because you are going to spend at least this price on filters, heaters, rocks, fish, ect. So buy a tank that is has a better footprint, the 75gallon with stand goes ONSALE for under 300$ multiple times and is well worth the extra money, this tank does not allow any bigger fish than a 29 gallon (argumentative) because it is 12" wide way too narrow, 75 gallon is 18" wide and makes a huge difference. Plus the filter size and heaters would be the same ones used on the 60 gallon.
A lot of money and energy to find out you need a different footprint of a tank and then change over...

Sorry for dragging out just; so happy to rid of this and loved my 75 gallon hold out it is beautifull tank and worth it

So tempted to move up to this from my 36 gallon bow front...

I've been keeping fish for 6-7 years now, but I'm no expert by any mean. I just do the bare minimum. What would be the process for me to move to a new tank? Can I simply move the existing gravel and water over and it's good to go? I'm running a Fluval canister so all the good stuff will just be there when I move it over. Right?

I also agree with this guy. 75 gal is the sweet spot for 4 foot tanks. I had a 55 and hated how skinny it was and a 60 is even worse.

Depend on the tank of course. You can always ask the owner and check if it's worth the risk. I once bought a 1-year old 36 gal bow front tank with a whole lot of accessories and fish foods for $80. Very sweet deal

I agree that a 75 would be a better choice, but it depends what you're putting in it. If you look here:

http://www.aquariumdimensions.com/

The 55 is 48x13x20 whereas the 60 is 48x13x24, so you're just gaining a bit of height. I have a 29 and the types of fish that can fit into a 29 are much different. A 55 for example is a decent size for mbuna, you can't put most mbuna in a 29. If I didn't already have my 55 (which I've owned for over 2 decades) I'd definitely buy a 75.

Advice I'd give to anyone looking to get a tank, is spend 10x as much planning what types of fish you're going to put in the tank than time you'll spend shopping for the tank. Also think through which fish will be compatible with everything you want in the tank prior to putting anything in it.

Edit to add a pic of my favorite mbuna tank I've seen online, it has yellow labs and yellow tailed acei in it.

Does this come with everything I would need? First time getting fish, not planning on getting anything major yet.
