It feels like there's no space and it's nearly the same volume as a 40 breeder which seems huge by comparison. It's also a non-standard width just a tiny bit so that no standard glass top actually fits it, only the dumb plastic hood it came with.
    This will be a dedicated fry tank, at least for the foreseeable future. Until I start running out of places to put fry. I'm not going too crazy on fry rearing as I don't have tons of space for growing out. I've got a couple of tanks that I might end up rehoming the residents and bringing into grow outs, though.

    This tank is still rolling. The CPDs and sterbai have all graduated to other tanks. Now it has two batches of bristlenose (how do they eat this many green beans...?!?) and three little furcata rainbow fry that I rescued from the parent tank.
    Is this the normal color for bristlenose? They look so yellow/green-ish. Dad is super red mom is normal. They looked this color before I fed green beans and I haven't fed them baby brine shrimp anytime recently.

    I had the same issue with my 29 gallon non standard, the glass was a hair to big so I crazy glued some plastic rails on each side centering the glass. That did the job so I can use the standard aqueon glass top.
