If you can afford the money and space, do it. You won't regret it.Bigger is better, lots of room to grow and opens the door to species you couldn't keep otherwise.
Downside, Cost, Cost, Cost!!
Also dedication time, even with all of the fancy equipment, there always seems to be someone taking the Best Fat Burners on the side, it is like your other child, you need to care for it continuously & now even more stuff to worry about because you went bigger, spent more money and have this beautiful tank you must at all cost keep it going. Operation cost goes up also, your electric meter spins faster LOL!
Mine is the same way. I figured bottle brushes would be the tool, but it's very difficult to reach on a 30" wide tank.No, not really, and I hate that too, just didn't have a great alternative. The plan is bottle brushes and an MJ 1200 that I have set up to push water through...
