    Default 72 Gallon Bow Front sizes?

    Hey, I found out that a friend of mine wants to purchase my 55 gallon tank so i was thinking of buying a larger tank. What i was wanting was either a 72 gallon bow front or a 75 gallon standard.

    I know that the 75 dimensions are 48x18x21
    All i know about the 72 is it is 48x?x21

    Does anyone know the depth in the shortest part of the bow and the longest? I cant seem to find it.

    Thanks, Mike

    To ask a differnt question...what is better for a cichlid set-up as far as footpring for a 72 bow or a 75 standard? Is there really a big difference?

    75 is better by a little...
