    I have the option of two tanks. One is 30G and one is 60G
    30G for 35$
    Length: 30"
    Height: 18.5"
    Width/depth: 12.5"

    60G for Free
    Length: 36"
    Height: 30"
    Width/Depth: 13"

    I'm not sure if it's just me and my lack of experience but is 12.5-13" inches too narrow of a tank?

    My last option would be get both and use the 30G as a sump or refugium for the 60g.

    Which would you all suggest, I know many of you will say 60G because a higher volume is better for stability and all but I like small scale/easier to maintain a bit. I only intend on having a light bioload.
    What are you thoughts and things I might be missing because of my lack of experience?

    Also anyone have a good guide to initial tank cycling?
