Hope this helps...

75g (285 ltr) = 48 x 18 x 20 inches or 122 x 46 x 51cm
90g (342 ltr) = 48 x 18 x 24 inches or 122 x 46 x 61cm
100g (380 ltr) = 60 x 18 x 20 inches or 152½ x 46 x 51cm
110g XH (418 ltr) XH = 48 x 18 x 30 inches or 122 x 92½ x 76cm
120g (456 ltr) = 48 x 24 x 24 inches or 122 x 61 x 61cm


So a 120g would be the largest, but not much length for a tank that size, its more front to back depth. If you have enough room for a 152½cm tank the 100g would be my choice.

You'd most likely find the 90-g the easiest...

As for which fish to add, let us know what you've currently got, and we'll take a peek...
