    46g bow front tank

    i'm thinking of upgrading to this tank but i don;t know if it will fit on the stand that i have. does anyone know the dimensions from the back to the bow front of the tank? my stand is only 36in by 16in.

    The standard size (via google search) seems to be 16X36X20. It may work, but you'll definitely want to do some research (call stores, walk in and measure, etc) before you make a final decision. Besides, if you're going to upgrade, why not go 50g. Some are available in the same measurements as the bow front. Just a suggestion

    sara,
    what do u mean a 50g with the same measurement as the bowfront? a 50g bowfront?
    my stand is exactly 16inches wide, do u think a 36 by 16 will be safe on a stand like that? or maybe even put a half inch board on it with it extended a few inches in hte back.

    either way i think you should go at big alls and mesure one of there 46 gallon bow or even go at pet smart they have some..if they ask any questions why just tell them that you want to make sure it will fit...that way you will be sure and will answer all your questions
