View Full Version : setting up from scratch

08/28/2009, 11:03 PM
I purchased my first tank in June, a 12 gallon nano cube. I knew as soon as the guy I bought it from sat it up that I would want to go with a larger tank, so I bought a used 60 gallon this week. I'm wanting fish, as well as coral in this one, so I believe I need t5 lighting, right? Also, i measured the tank from end to end and the measurements are 39 3/4 by 16". My question is, do I measure the small ledge on the inside, or the way I did it from end to end? Does this make sense? Thank you
