Hi all. I am new to this forum and hope this topic is in the right place. I started my first non classroom tank 4 years ago, it was a 65g tall. I found panda corys to be a favorite so I downgraded to a 40g breeder almost 3 years ago. I like the footprint better. My hubby who has a one tank rule (although I have a 10g for a beta I rescued from a classroom lol) surprised me with a 75g tank with the same footprint. He's building my stand and is making it big enough to also out my 40g breeder on. I like only real materials in the tank and I love plants so I'd love to try corals. I was going to make the 75g the freshwater
and the 40 breeder the saltwater. Although I don't think I've seen a saltwater done I'm the breeder?? Well today as we're building he asked if I'd rather have a 125g on the stand instead of the two. I like to sit in front of my tank and read or watch fish.
So my questions are:
would it look crazy to have a freshwater
and saltwater side by side with about a foot in between?
Should I just go for the 125 freshwater? ( my plan for the 75 is light sand dragonstone aquascape and I'd expand that for the 125. I love the almost ethereal look) with lots of moss and some other greens...
Does anyone with experience have any regrets about a tank that size or any insight that would help? I feel sort of greedy but the 125 has been a dream for awhile but I've also been wanting to try saltwater since my plants do so well I'd love to try corals...I'm totally on the fence :(
Sorry for the long intro before the questions I figured more info the better? Thanks so much
