Just picked up a 58gal, which was the largest 36" i could find... Tank is 36Lx18Dx20H.

I'm going to need the following:

Stand (footprint for tank is 18 9/16" x 36 9/16th)
Canopy (or glass tops and light fixture). Inside ledge of trim is 35 1/4" x 17 1/4"
Filter (something like AC110 or maybe canister fluval 305/405 or XP2/3)
* maybe an undergravel filter too??? don't know much about these
Heater (200w)
Rocks, driftwood.

I'm thinking this will be a cichlid setup, but not sure what type... gotta research that a bit over the coming weeks.

Not in a rush for this stuff... probably will take me a while to plan/set this up.

Hoping to do this on a budget, so hopefully my new friends @ BCA can help :D
