    Why do we keep doing this?
    I've decided to go as big as I can without eurobracing. 1200 x 700 x 500.
    I'll be putting my order in with Dennison again. PPG glass of course.
    I'm really looking forward to giving the fish some more swimming room.
    Got my heavy duty feet and will order the stand next week from the guy who built my current one.

    Silly question though - is the euro bracing that much of a deal breaker? Seems like a lot of work for not a massively larger tank?

    He must have too much money and it's burning a hole in his pocket. ;)

    It will be about 40% more volume. I’ve never been a eurobrace fan.
    Besides this size is going to be the limit of approval from Kathy.

    The main reason for the change was to get more front to back space so that I can create a two bommie layout giving the fish a figure 8 swim area. Not that I’m doing everything @somethingfishy76 does but his scape looks and works so well for his fish it was certainly worth trying the same.
    Plus I can keep my beautiful healthy tangs longer.

    Will your tiles handle the pressure of the stand on those feet?

    Well, big change of mind. I’ve decided not to go ahead with the new tank.
    I’ve just suddenly lost interest in doing it and probably just shelve it.
    When I’m feeling better I’ll just concentrate on manicuring the current tank and making it look a bit better.

    I know that feeling Dave, sometimes you need to go with what you have and relax a bit. I'll see something on a transship list and want it, then I thing, damn, another tank, screw that.
