Grreat Choice® 20 Gallon Glass Aquarium
Good quality and value, great size.
There are 20 gallon Long, 20 gallon Regular, and 20 gallon tall. The word "Long" tells you it will be the fishs' favorite size. More distance to swim back and forth and get on the other side of the tank from the larger bully fish. You can keep fish together in a 20 gallon Long that are not compatible in a 20 Regular High. Also can stock more fish in the tank.
People love to look at tall aquariums. Fish love living in long ones.
Try this, Google: Cichlid forum articles cookie cutter. See how many more species fit in a longer community tank.
The quality is very good, no leaks, no problems. The Aqueon Versa-top 30" sold by Pet Smart fit right on this tank. One of the least expensive and best way to cover a tank and keep all water off of whatever light fixture you set on the Versa-top. Access is just raise the handle (the top is hinged lengthwise down the middle) this gives you half a tank size opening. Or carry the whole top away and the tank is wide open for cleaning. Many good types of flourescents or led light strips are suitable to sit right on the Versa-top.
I got 2 of these tanks and 2 Versa-tops for under $100. Can't beat it.
PetSmart had full enclosure hoods with lights too. They were better than hoods packaged in starter sets. Hoods look nicer in a living room than a Versa-Top. But Versa top is easier to access inside to clean and move plants or rocks around, and feed.
I recomend a metal stand. They are available that thank 2 tanks, one high and one low on the stand. Under $50 for this kind of double stand. Stronger than wood, in general, and cheaper too.
I googled aquarium sizes and weights EMPTY tanks:
This (20 Long) weighs 25 pounds, easy to carry.
10 gallon regular 11 pounds.
29 gallon tank 40 pounds.
55 gallon weighs 78 pounds.
75 gallon 148 pounds.
Pet Smart had Versa tops for all these sizes (the 29 gallon and 20 Long take the same top).
The staff at Pet Smart will help you carry and load your heavy tank and were able to answer questions. So you can get home with a bigger tank than this one.
A great tank, no problems! We bought two.

The perfect home tank.
After owning a ten gallon tank, I wanted to upgrade to this tank size after seeing it in store. It's been the perfect choice since. Having no problems, able to create any underwater themes of my choosing I love the tank. I want to buy another one !
