i'm looking for a bigger tank for my octo spider becouse he's outgrown the tank he's in so fast i wasn't ready for it and my other tank still has to many stinging corals in it.i was hoping to get a 65 for him but i've found a 55 cubeish tank that will fit my space situation a little better, at 30x18x24 it's about the same shape as the 65 i was planing for just 6in shorter, origonaly the 65 was planed for an o.briareus wich gets bigger than the aculeatus so i'm hoping the 55 will be big enuf for spider. it will also be conected to a biger system with another 120g of water
opinions??

This is the same tank i keep my Aculeatuses and hummilinkis and a a few mercs, but it was too big for the mercs and i never saw them. briareus i think its a little too small.
