    New big scape

    So... I'm moving.

    I plan to do a large planted tank. I have two options: standard Marineland 180 (72x24x24) or a Leemar 180 (72x30x20)

    Plan is for a dutch style with a large tree/stump/root looking thing.

    Which should I go with...?

    Anything special about the Leemar tank? Euro bracing, starfire glass, black silicone, overflows, etc...
    Need more details.

    Yes. All of the above. Typical Leemar goodies. Center top overflow

    I feel like Leemar is overrated, but in this case, it is all about the width.
