4ft 150s are 24" front to back, and 31" tall. Have the same footprint as a 120 has. It doesn't take very long to get tired of trying to reach the bottom of a 31" tall tank.That's a great size for a tank, the 24" depth is very nice to aqua scale and it's not so tall you'll get nose bleeds

Yea it would be 31 high which is tall but I do but I dont want a 6ft tank. It would be the same as a 110 but alittle higher I think. Nothing a step stool cant handle.It would be nice having a bigger tank and not really have to buy anything new4ft 150s are 24" front to back, and 31" tall. Have the same footprint as a 120 has.

The height of the tank isn't the biggest issue. As you said you can simply get a foot stool to reach the top. The issue comes when you try to reach the bottom. The 110 High and the 150 are the same width and height, just different depth (front to back) and the "depth" dimension which can become confusing. Take your 75 and build fake wall extensions on the top of the tank to make the sides 32" tall. It doesn't take long to see what a pain it can become to work on the bottom :bawling:Yea it would be 31 high which is tall but I do but I dont want a 6ft tank.

The 75 and 90 have the same footprint/stand size. The 120 is larger from front to back but the same height as the 90. So, if you cross off the 90 because of the height then you should also cross off the 120 because its the same height.

They make a 75 Tall that is only 36" wide, a 90 that is 72" and called a 90 Long, and a 120 Cube that is 30" wide. I stayed with the 48" width because you said you liked the 48" tanks. But, with those three 3 tank sizes the 48" width is the generally assumed sizes unless stated otherwise.

Or, were you referring to one of the long/short/tall tanks with short or longer widths?

note that I said the added height without the added depth... if you get extra depth then I don't mind the extra height.The 75 and 90 have the same footprint/stand size. The 120 is larger from front to back but the same height as the 90. So, if you cross off the 90 because of the height then you should also cross off the 120 because its the same height.

I could be wrong... and obviously depends on the manufacturer, but I think only the bottom is tempered on 120s.
