What are the dimensions of the 60G hex? What kind of fish do you want to keep?

If you want to keep something that defends a territory, the 55G will likely have a better footprint and allow you more options.

+1 on the 55g. its not the water volume, its the footprint when it comes to most cichlids i have learned.

I am part of the crew who help run the website. There are plenty of other people who help answer questions on this site, I guess you've just been unlucky to get me a few times. :lol:

The 55 gal would be the better choice if it is a 48 inch long top tank. Greater surface area helps control water problems

Hi dear,

I think glasses tank for the fish is better than all other tank.
I am using the glass tank for the fishing since two years, it is working very good.
