More gallons that is. I currently have a 55g Tall with Yellow Labs in it. The rest of my stock died a few days after I got them from ick. Anyway, that was almost 2 years ago and I couldn't keep them from procreating so now I have 9 in there. (No aggression has been seen.) So I'm looking to upgrade to either a 75g, 90g or 125g. I would get rid of the 55g Tall and put the Yellow Labs in the new tank. Any suggestions? Should I go big or go home? Should I add some more fishies? Different breeds? Just looking for somewhere to end up. Thanks in advance! :fish:

Well there must be a reason you want more gallons? Do you have your eye on one or more other species?

I've always preferred the look of 6' tanks, and once you are at 90 gallons in a 4 footer, it gets difficult to work on the tank due to the depth.

I would like to have at least 2 more species in the tank.

You could add 2 species to a 55G that is 48x12 depending on which species you choose, for a total of 3 species.

I like 4 species in a 75G or 90G.

And 5 species in a 72" long tank.

My favorite tank size is the 75G for display and the 33G 48x12 for utility.
