    Xmas pressie advice, please have a look.

    I thought of a pressie i could get my OH for xmas, he is a KEEN tropical fish keeper. He has only been doing it about 18months and i know in his heart he would love a bigger tank.

    I saw this and being NOT SO into fish as him, i wondered what your views are.

    My livingroom is 29ft long so possibly could take it, but im thinking of the spec... etc i cant exactly ask my OH! LOL

    Cheers in advance.

    ya reckon too big, maybe the smaller one then? i saw a 4ft as well..?

    I reckon you should involve him, unless it really needs to be a surprise?

    Depending on what type of fish he wants to keep might affect the size of the tank, substrate etc?
    What size do you currently have?

    Personally, I think it's a bit overpriced. I used to have a 4ft one like that & sold it on fleabay for about £100. Why don't you look for a second hand one and then buy him really good accessories to go with it?

    Thanks hun, that would be lovely,
    There is nothing wrong with the tank we got now but i know he would love a bigger one. So think thats what i will get him. Just difficult not knowing whether i buy a good one, etc..
