Default My 50 Gallon

Is it normal for a 50 to only be 12 inches wide? This 50 I just got is 12x21x47 (WxHxL.) Is that enough floor space for a terrestrial species like a group of 2 or 3 tincs?

I am no expert but i would say 4 foot by 1 foot of ground space is plenty of room for a trio of tincs!!! Make sure you post some pics for us to see!!!

Well sometimes not. A 2.1 should be fine but in a 1.2 you might see alot of fighting. But with a 2.1 or some juvis you should be fine.

My 40 gal and 55 gal are both a 12" wide, and they provide plenty of floor space. I'd say a trio of tincs would be fine in yours. Good luck!

Most aquariums are only 12" wide up to 55 gallons. There are some wider, like 40 gallon breeder, but most are just 12".

I like to use this page to give me a good idea on tank size.

It does not cover every size, but most of the more common and some really large ones.
