I have been looking at the 180 Tall on Glass Cages.com http://65.197.157.223/newto/pages/main.asp...iewCat&lCatID=2 it looks good and a great price a think tell me what you think and what filter should I use I have a aqua clear 500 on my 55 gal tank right now and it says on the box support up to 100 us gallons so should I get another one and dual them? Also how many piranha's can be in there?

Thx

Honestly.. I wouldnt get a "tall" tank
Your Ps need more room to swim sideways, not up and down.
Its a huge tank, but still would need to be upgraded when your Ps get bigger. Space and territories are claimed by different areas and sections, not height level in the tank.

Take Rhom's advice.
I have a tall tank, its not cool.

In the near future I'll probably sell my 150 tall, and buy a larger 'regular' aquarium.
Its kinda scary sticking your hands in a tall tank (mine is 31") with a shoal of 8.
Then again, mine are only juvi's...

and its only 18" deep, from front to back, thats what i have now, it works, but im sure the would be happier with the 24" deep one.

plus it would be that much harder to clean the gravel.

its a nice display tank though

go for the 240 long . . . its 24" longer, and 6" wider. while that dosent sound like too much, you will be able to keep a larger shoal (both in #'s and individual fish size) than that 180 Tall. if your planning on getting a tank that you wont ever have to upgrade for your pirnahas, the extra $100 is well worth it!

other larger tanks they have that would be great for piranhas include:

340 Gal - 130 x 24 x 25
180 Gal Wide - 72 x 24 x 25
150 Gal Long - 60 x 24 x 25
125 Gal Wide - 72 x 24 x 17
100 Gal Long - 72 x 18 x 17

your going to need a crap load more filtration than 2 ac500's for anything over 75 gallons. for tanks 125 and above, I would sugguest you look inte getting a wet-dry setup. Info for these filters can be found with verry little effort.

Google search "Wet-Dry filters"
P-Fish Search "Wet-Dry"
Ask.com Search "What is a Wet-Dry Filter"

Mine measures 24" x 48" x 31".

But for sure, get a regular, or a long tank.
Square tanks are cool too.
