Anyone have any thoughts on the Eclipse 37 gallon acrylic setup for about $170? Yah it seems steap but you get the complete setup in a box and its whisper quiet. Just add a heater and the gravel, plants and rocks and its good to go.

Gonna put 2 P's and a pleco in there..way too many fish or do-able? I won't upgrade from that for 2-3 years or so. If not what would be a NICE looking setup that minimizes space required? Looking to spend about $250 with accessories or so

I don't have room for like a 75 gallon setup

What tank is there that is bigger vertically rather than horizontal?

I thought it was roughly 20 gallons per P

So 37 gallons would be good enough for 2 Ps correct?

I see 3 P's in a 55 for life

I value this boards opinion which is why I'm here

I already have 2 baby Ps in a 12 gallon right now and they seem to get along pretty well most of the time

I'd like to get a good looking tank but would like to see if it would be reasonable to keep just 1 in there then and then add a pleco to the 37?

If not what kind of space saving quiet setup can I get for under $300?

LPS was quoting about $170 for a 40 gallon glass with an Eclipse hood with the filter, bio wheel, etc

I was also talking to Xenon who said that some people have got 2 Ps to live together with some success?

I was figuring on taking the risk?

Thanks guys

I guess anything is better than the 12 gallon that the two babies are in right now haha

I'll try to get a 40 or bigger this weekend

What is the general thinking on Marinelands Instant Stuff?

Claims I can dump them in in 24 hours without cycling for a long time

If no one has tried I'll try it out this weekend and let you know

No they actually dont want to sell my high end stuff there, nor do they care since I dont think they are on commission

What can I get that has a NICE hood with everything integrated? I don't want to piece together 10 different things and I want dead quiet

good heater = won bros, I get mine for about 25
hood about 30 for glass lids
fitler depends on what you get but under 60 for smaller tanks

What kind of filter?

No bio wheel needed?
