Thinking of buying a 110 gal show tank for my fronts since they are quickly outgrowing my 58. I have five fronts, 2 julis, 3 leleupis, and 1 neo sexfasciatus. I've been looking at a 120 gallon five footer but my lfs has a great deal on this 110 gal high. They want $375 for the tank, stand, hood, & light. I'm just a little concerned that the tank does'nt have enough surface area to please all of the fish. I have plenty of lace rock to stack and make caves though. The dimensions of the 110 gal are 48"x13"x30". Any feedback would really be appreciated

You have to be kidding me, you are actually contemplating such an offer? If I lived anywhere near this area you would have already lost this tank, for I would have paid twice that amount for such a deal.:jaw:

That is a killer deal for tank/hood/stand...It's a little small for five fronts...I also know that the Julis and lelupis will need lots of bottom area since they are substrate/cave spawners, so it might be a little cramped on the ground...If you lace rock the heck out of it reef style, you may be able to get away with it...but I've never kept fronts so take my advice w/a grain of salt...

This kind of deal is not at all unusual for this fish store. Every month their wholesaler sends them a list of tanks that they can mark down very cheap. In March they had a 5' 120 gal. w/hood, light, and stand for $385 and a 90 gal. w/hood, light and stand for $345. The only reason I have'nt gotten the 110 yet is because their new list is coming out on Wednesday and I'm hoping that they will have that 120 on special again because with five fronts I believe I need that surface space.

wow - I wish I had only spent 345 on my first 55... the stands really make things expensive...

how many hours is it from Chicago to South Carolina?

Hmmm.... Matt contemplates renting a car and the weight his floor can support...

Great deal!!!!

Hey Matt - when I get home we could do a road trip... I could bring my extra holey rock down too and sell it for a profit in SC :)

The lace rock? they have it at some lfs for 1.29 a pound or so... but you might be able to get it cheaper on ebay

With five fronts, you are going to need a whole heck of a lot more than a 110 gallon high, it may seem like a deal for you but in the end those frontosa's will be the one's getting the short end of the deal.
