well the max length of the tank could hypothetically be 48" long x 36" high (that would be with a stand though) x 18" wide. I know it is strange dimensions, but that is what I have.

I know, the apistos/rams would love a longer tank with a larger footprint, but the ADA tank is 18 gallons, and it is regularly proportioned, not long. I woudl love a 20 gallon long, but I would like it rimless, but I don't know where to buy

20 long rimless would be custom order.
You can get a nice 20 long for cheap however.
Why don't you get the 20 long for 20 to 30 bucks and save your money for co2 set up or a better light.

Oh, I forgot to ask if you have co2 but I bet you need a 30" light for your 20 long.

no, there will be no additional co2, it will be 3 watts per gallon, fyi. Oh yeah, so glasscages.com is bad right? They have rimless 20 gallon longs, but I bet they are bad quality, knowing glasscages.com

I don't know about their quality but their customer service sucks.
I e-mailed them about 20 times and never got a reply and I could never get them on the phone.

With 3wpg you better get c02 or you will only grow algae.

If you can't do C02 then you better keep it under 2wpg

Well, I could possibly do Co2, but I hear DIY co2 formula smells bad. I emailed them before, I got a response the next day. I will email them and ask how much it would cost for a 20 gallon long with the front panel starphire glass and a stand to fit it.

I won't mess with DIY either. You should go with compressed CO2.

yeah, all together, I have a $350 budget. A parent's gift, its probably not enough to set up an entire tank.
