75P is too much money, but this is about your range.

I was looking for something a little bigger. I want to keep a pair of blue rams or a trio of Apistogramma Trifasciata. So the size should be about 25 gallons or more. Is glasscages.com good? I hear many bad things about them, but all the ADA larger tanks are too expensive, and the glasscages.com ones are very cheap, but probably very shoddy.

Why not get an AGA 40 gallon Breeder?

Where do you live?

I have a very small room on the 2nd floor. I don't think it would be agood idea, and anyway, my parents don't want it, 30 gallon would probably the max in their book.

I wouldn't mind a 40 gallon, its just them. If you can help me convince them.....Also, we live in California, so they get a little nervous that 1 day 40 gallons of water will come crashing down, ruining the entire 2nd floor carpet and costing them 1000s of $'s. I'm not too worried, seeing that tanks are very sturdy, even on carpet, because there si so much pressure in the floor, it won't wobble. We also get earthquakes maybe once every 1.25 years, and I'm in the bay area, so we are bound to have a major one soon, but for now, it is all small earthquakes that are max category 3 quakes, and remember, 1.25 years.

Well, common sizes are 20 high (24 x 12 tall), 20 long (30 x 12 shallow) then there is the 38 gallon which is like a 20 long but as sall as the 20 high, then the 40 breeder which is 30 x 18.

So the 40 is not any longer then the 20 long, just taller and you get an extra 6" to the back of the tank.

If you are stuck on 20 gallon, you might as well get the ADA tank that is 18 gallons, you can't really tell the difference between it and the 20 high.

Also, where do you live?

Bay Area, California (martinez, California) I'm sorry if I keep on disregarding your suggestions, but my parents are very scared of destroying the carpet. I have a lot of things in my small room, 2 finches, hermit crabs, computer, bunk bed (for myself with my videogames and TV on the bottom bunk, art suppiles, and 2 bookshelves.

So what dimensions of a tank are you looking for.
Not gallons, length and width. The I can tell you what is available.

I total agree with what Toby said.

Why don't you get a glass 20 long and spend the extra money on substrate, CO2, or light? You could come to SFBAAPS monthly meetings for plants.
