New 75 Gallon Tank

Posted By: Mr Leadfoot <leadfoot@sbcglobal.net>

I got my new 75 gallon All-Glass. It's a 75E, whatever that means, with tempered glass. I'm shocked at how hard it is to NOT set it up!

I actually got it because I needed the real measurements for the spec'ing stage of the my wall unit. With All-Glass's recent merger with Island Aquarium, I thought it best to get a tank now, rather than build the wall unit on specs of a certain sized tank, only to find later that they're discontinuing this size. I heard that All-Glass actually has stopped making this tank since the merger, and I'm not sure if it's just because of regrouping, but I didn't want to take a chance.

This is going to be much harder than I imagined. The looking-but-not-using part of this! :-(

My only consolation is that I just know my clowns will love this tank. And, if it's true that fish limit their potential growth to their environment, then my clowns that doubled to 4+ inches in 6 months will easily reach 8 inches within another year, once they're in their new home.

I just need to remind myself everyday to not touch it!
