NanotankBank Posted March 30 Share Posted March 30 So a big tank debate I see is that people prefer the 40gal Breeder over a 55gal and I’m curious as to why. I hear it’s because the 40gal breeder has more width, so there is more surface area for bottom dwellers. And while that is true, after doing the math, a 40gal breeder has 648 sq inches of space as opposed to 624 in the 55gal. So yes, there is 24 sq inches more of space, but I find that when given more space, people place more decor or plants. So at the end of the day, is it really worth it to get a 40gal breeder that is less desirable to watch from the outside due to the lower height and short length? P.S. I understand sometimes if u have a big fish that needs room to turn, the 40gal is the better option Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
